Hi there! This is Chandan Sinha. I am a Mechanical Engineer who fell in love with all things creative be it design, physical/digital art, film-making, music - you name it. I have this insatiable curiosity to know the fundamental nature of everything which gives way to this thirst for knowledge. Growing up in a distant countryside surrounded by coal mines, I got to see fascinating machineries on a daily basis. This sparked my eternal interest in hardware. I am an autodidact for the most part and I strive to possess diverse skill-set.
I started this techblog back in 2016 to account my journey as an engineer. I am immensely fascinated by technology and this is my outlet to talk about my creations and learnings along the way. My academic coursework gave me an early exposure to the world of scientific research but I found it to be restraining. This is me going extra mural. I love productive discussions, so feel free to drop me a message in case you have anything interesting to talk about.
You can also reach out to me through email at email@example.com.
Hardware is hard, hardware in India is harder. I'm on a mission to bring hardware revolution in India.

Miscellaneous Stuff -
There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing - for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmonid knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins - their home in the salty depth. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens.
The spectacular truth is - and this is something that your DNA has known all along - the very atoms in your body - the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on - were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.
