"Life can be magnificent and overwhelming. That is it's whole tragedy.

Without beauty love or danger it would be almost easy to live"

- Albert Camus

My main interests fall in the areas related to
digital communications and
coding theory.
More specifically, the topics that interest me a lot are digital
communication theory, information
theory,
error correcting
codes ,
signal processing
, combinatorics, complexity
theory etc. But above all these I have a deep love for mathematics.
For culture sake, I also maintain an interest in certain topics not directly
related to my work (though the busy life has made this a bit more
difficult these days): Commutative
Algebra, Algebraic Number
Theory and Algebraic Geometry
are some examples; Off late I have also (Re) developed an interest
in Physics (especially
GR &Cosmology). Very recently(after listening to David
Forney's talk on "Codes and systems on Graphs"
at the IEEE Information theory
workshop) I am quite interetsted in Graph theory
as well.
