Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication

Welcome to my home page !

Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does Nature, because in her inventions, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. -Leonardo da Vinci

Here is WHY this page came into existence.

I have been dreaming to have a nice little home page for years now. But every time I got started on developing one, I was only left wanting more from the page. I only ended up trying to learn more and more web technologies and never actually developing the website!

So one fine day when I was tyring (to find an excuse) to do my work and write my thesis, I said to myself "Hmm.. I should build my home page now!". And so here we are!!

Here is HOW this page came into existence.

I figured I wasn't artistic enough to put together a nice page from scratch and neither am I patient enough to do that. So I borrowed from a bunch of template pages from different places and worked my way from there. So here are the sources:

And ofcourse the website that has taught me everything I know about web technology is One of my friends, who is a web expert, once told me that w3schools is not a good place to learn from. But hey as long as I can get my work done, who cares about technicalities!! Anyway I had to leave this disclaimer just in case.
