It has happened - GSoC 2016 Selection!

Wow!

I have been selected for the Google Summer of Code!

For the better part of the summer vacation, I will now be committing myself to write code for KDE to implement my project idea of implementing a virtual folder in Dolphin to make it easier to select files.

What do I do now?

I spend a lot of time thinking since I've joined college.

I had postponed a lot of introspection during the two years I spent slogging away for the JEE. But now, with ample free time and practically no requirement to go to classes, I've finally got some time ...

GSoC 2016 Project Survey, help me make Dolphin a better File Manager!

T+2 Years And Counting: My IIT-JEE preparation story

'The 1 = Everything' equation

What's your unlucky number?

"13", say some people

"Nooo, 4", say the others.

My unlucky number's 1. Yup. The closest whole number to zero really sucks for me. Cricket: Lost by 1 run. Badminton: 20-21 (no deuces). It's pretty much everywhere. More so from a competitive exam ...
