Hi, I’m Manik. I currently live in New Delhi, India.
Technology excites me! I’m an experienced Technologist and think of myself as a problem solver. I have worked with companies of varying sizes, right from early stage startups to large MNCs and have met some very interesting people along the way. I aspire to run my own business someday. My detailed profile.
I’m a Dad to two wonderful kids, a boy aged 4 and a girl aged 2. They bring a lot of joy to my life.
I love listening to music, and it gets my concentration really going. The genres I like most are fusion, classic rock, ghazals and good remixes. My favourite artists are Indian Ocean, Advaita, Pink Floyd, and Nitin Sawhney.
I love watching movies, mostly alone because I don’t like to be distracted when I’m into a good movie. Speaking of movies, I’ve acted in some skits which you can watch here.
I love food but I don’t particularly like the term “Foodie”. Also, I believe good food doesn’t need to burn a hole in one’s pocket. I like to cook too, mostly non-vegetarian main course. I bake too sometimes, when I’m in a good mood.
I like to travel. And I often day dream about traveling. I like my trips to not be too touristy, and not packed with too many activities. Some people call that lazy, I call it soaking in the environment. I particularly enjoy train journeys, and getting off at strange stations to have tea.
I love people watching. So a long wait at the airport, or a ride on the metro is usually not a problem for me. Delhi, especially, never disappoints people watchers and I love watching my city and its life forms.
I like to click pictures that capture the moment or tell a story. I’m not that good in terms of techniques, but I click anyways. You can checkout my clicks here.
I’ve not figured out life yet, but I’m trying to, one day at a time.
I like interacting with people and making new friends. You may connect with me via any of the mediums (links below).
