Bio:I was born in Mukuperi, Nazareth, India. I had schooling in different parts of Tamilnadu, India. Though my childhood days were not stable, with a lot of endurance my mom made sure I got a good education.


Academics aside, I like running, swimming and biking. I am also interested in creative web designing on seeing attractive pages in web. This prompted me to create this site.
