What is common to a random conversation over a cup of coffee, a simple yet alluring photograph, or a few lines of poetry/literature?
All of them have the power to change the world.
And that power is in you too. Every one of us has it. We may just not know how to channel it, where to channel it, and at times are unaware of our own contributions that help in the betterment of the society at large. But, with every little positive step you take, you are creating a ripple effect and making the world a better place.
I was looking at my LinkedIn profile the other day and noticed a few lines from a recommendation written by one of my friends-
“Aditya is one of the most efficient managers of time. It makes me wonder as to how he gets time to work for LinkedIn, manage his academics and nurture his technical skills.”
When I look at it today, it looks like an overkill but there was a time when I used to give my semester exam in the morning, do my internship work in the afternoon, work on LinkedIn and my personal projects in the evening…
I’ll be straightforward and honest here. I find a lot of culture around parties to be fake and namesake. I personally don’t find enjoyment in such things, the way they happen these days. By using the word, “Party”, I am also referring to the casual social gatherings that happen among friends.
The thoughts in this diary entry are specific to me and me alone. These are the ideals I stand for. I do acknowledge that different people will have different preferences. Take these thoughts as just another perspective on the internet and introspect for yourself.
From best friends to arch enemies and family, it is almost inevitable for conflict to arise at some point in time. In fact, conflict is a frequent part of human life. We all would have had our differences in opinions and interests. We might have told something we shouldn’t have or behaved in a way someone didn’t like and so on- conflicts happen all the time, for all sorts of reasons.
I wanted to share some perspectives on dealing with them given how intense and life-changing some conflicts can be. I guess, the next time I end up in a…

With a lot of developers taking notice of the new Svelte framework, I thought I will explore a bit of it. As with most of my learning experiments, I got started with actually building something tangible and documenting the process. This tutorial will be super beginner-friendly and I hope even those who haven’t written a single line of code before can follow easily. Also, the focus won’t be just on “programming”, but also on “thinking”. The insights mentioned here can be applied to any kind of project you want to build.
In my 2020 resolutions blog, I mentioned two things I wanted to do-
Looking back at those 12 months, I kind of fulfilled the simple targets I had. I have created and curated quite a lot of memes. Then, I created the Self-learning Technology Program. I wouldn’t consider it as a success but it laid a strong foundation to what I will be doing next. …
A myriad of monsoons ago
I found a feast of words, my soul could dine
Fluid like a flame, the lines flow
Sweeping subtly, the heart of mine
Several summers elapsed since
I found this serenade weaved with cyanide
A vortex of the seven deadly sins
Scorching swiftly, my soul inside
Countless winters flew by
As its shadow seeped into my mind
Sane or insane, I wonder as I sigh
Ain’t the one who wrote it, rarest of our kind
Even a sky of autumns later
It shall be what Aprils are to me
A sea of snippets, as deep as it can be
An ocean of visions, as far as I can see!
Gentle as a snowflake
Serene like an isolated lake
She was true north
An eye of a brewing storm
Fiery as an electric spark
Scary like a cat in the dark
Her loathe was south
Her anger, a spring of youth
What do I want in this vastness?
A trillion trillion planets and then there’s Earth
The only known observatory
Across the hundred billion galaxies
They showed me a lot of things
The rings of Saturn, the lakes of Titan
The depths in the craters, the darkness of matter
The panoramas of Hubble, the rocks of the Moon
They showed me incredible things
The petals of flowers of exotic colors
The beauty of life and star-crossed lovers
The shades of starlight in our exosphere
They showed me things out of the world The birth cries of a black hole The ripples…
In the world of computers, everything is based out of logic gates at the fundamental level. In short, logic gates are the building blocks of any processor. Think of them as tiny blocks that take in the binary code (1’s and 0’s) as input and give out some output, once again in binary.
There are different types of logic gates- AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, etc.
Let us take an example of a 2 input AND gate. It basically implements the logic of getting a HIGH ( binary 1) output when both the inputs are HIGH. …
