About me: just another nutcase trying to find out what is inside his shell. Following is (partly) who I am.

I come from the western state of Gujarat from India. I was raised in a typical Indian middle-class family, where parents live thrifty lives to fund their children's education and growth. I am married to lovable lady whom people call Nalinee and I, Neelu. We have become proud parents of lovely boy, Shashvat (sanskrit word meaning ‘eternal’ or ‘truth’) in July 09. My younger brother, Kalpesh, also earned his PhD in optics and likes the field of electromagentic simulations and optical coherence tomography.
