Born, raised and schooled in Salem, Tamilnadu, near foothills of the picturesque Shevaroy hills. Spoiled by outdoor sports, Cartoon Network, NatGeo, Discovery channels from early childhood. Saved by Tamil cultural heritage, insatiable eager for knowledge, exploratory attitude. After years of charting good Indian boy territories, now finally set course for doing what I love, Science! Every moment, sculpting myself to be better in cognitive science.
