Hi, I'm Anirudh (Builder, Tinkerer, Engineer, Explorer, Poet). Welcome to my Digital Garden!
Nandi Hills, May 2023
I'm currently studying Computer Science and Engineering at PES University, with a strong interest in Databases and Distributed Systems. I build projects to understand the same. You can check out my tech side here, and also look at my proof of work or my github.
I like writing (to myself, to people, for people), reading (scifi, thrillers, space operas, mystery), and playing guitar (acoustic). I also really enjoy travelling and meeting new people.
For an insight into what i'm currently up to and what sort of content I usually consume, check out the gateway.
About this Website
Fair warning - you will find incomplete posts on this website. That's by design.
Here's a map of this website. There's no search, so feel free to use
Crtl+F to do so - but in case you want a more curated exploration, here's the rough structure of this site -
- technology is a large part of my life - I see it as a means to bring about change in the world we live in.
- travel is arguably my favorite way to learn about nature, the world around me, and the human experience.
- research is how I attempt to learn more about my field and answer some of the larger questions.
- poetry is how I express myself. I write about things I like. This is an example.
The website you're reading right now is built with and generated by Saaru - A Project i've been working on for a whilte now.
