I have been programming in several languages for more than 3 years like C, C++, JAVA with Basic J2EE, ASP.NET using C# and PHP. I have been always very passionate about Computers and Ready to Learn attitude. I believe in self study which makes me very self-dependent and Challenges Loving.

Which is the best asset I have.Geography has always been one of my favorite subjects and I won JOINT UNIVERSITY GEOGRAPHY QUIZ in 2006.I am very keen to contribute to OLPC and be a part of such an ambitious project for a great cause for which I applied through Google Summer of Code'08.I would like to thank SJ and my mentor Mr.Nestor to give me this awesome opportunity to work on a great project which resonates with my area of interest.I will keep adding Ideas to the project even after it’s over for this season and contribute to OLPC life long along with my work for any company.I will remain committed to OLPC and hope to contribute to this great cause,this summer.
