Since past few months, I have been hiding away from this blog. My last post was on October 23, 2016. 6 months back! 

I went underground mostly for skills & productivity enhancement.

On last birthday (14th November, 2016), I realized that I had been losing the “growth mindset” and turning into really really lazy sloth.  Thus, I had decided to put stop on all other activities and to get back myself into growth mindset category. So what did I learn/improve upon?

  • Learned basics of economics, stock markets & investments
    • I read most of the topics from Zerodha Varsity. Free and highly recommended learning resource.
    • Book: Rich Dad Poor Dad – this book is a must read for everyone.
  • Completed photography course from: https://sites.google.com/site/marclevoylectures/home
  • Revisited Data Structures & Algorithms
  • Learned Node.js, AWS, Data Science Basics
  • Started participating in competitive programming challenges on HackerRank


Now I feel like I’m back on track and ready to roll. I’ve a long list of pending blog posts that I will start publishing soon.

Time to revive this blog.

Time to reboot.
