Kushal in 2010

Standard

about meThis following blog post was written by me in 2010 when I was a college student:

Social networking is one of my favorite online activities which includes real-time tweeting. Reading novels and posting reviews on Goodreads is among the other ones. I tried Dancing as well, which is one of my ways of balancing out my adrenaline rush and enjoying the music. And guess what is my profession: Computer Engineer. But I don’t spend all my time in the air-conditioned office, I rather like to go out and do something that makes a difference and I call it an investment in our future. One of these activities is teaching the underprivileged children in the nearby slum area. I seldom miss a chance to volunteer and have worked with various NGOs and societies. I believe in the idea of excellent education for all children which is the vision of Teach for India.

Motorcycling
I love to take risks and that’s why I like stunting. I believe in the quote, “if four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul”. Now you can reckon how much I love my motorbike. I’m d kind of guy who’ll be sneaking out of my bedroom at three o’clock in the morning to look at my bike.

(If you don’t ride in the rain, you don’t ride.)

One can key me out as a speedoholic. When I sit on my bike and kick-start it, I get a strange feeling as if I were omnipotent.

(Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don’t. Some can’t.)

Here is a video featuring one of my driving experiences:

In photography, my interest prevails as I keep up my photostream on flickr. Though with the advent of Instagram  I started clicking more pictures by using a smartphone.

I am going to put all about me and my thoughts on this blog, and I hope that you revel reading it.

Personalised Infographic – Kushal Ashok

This is what I ended up creating after going through the youtube bootcamp and pondering over the brand identity I would like to create for myself.  Though it is totally unrelated to the learnings I got from the camp, it somehow landed on me that one of the best visual experiences that I have showcased are info graphics. And though I started by looking for a template that could help me with the creation of my youtube channel art / banner; I eventually created this infographic that depicts some facts about me. This includes my introduction as a mobile application developer, my college CGPA, a breakdown of my activities and work.
I have even included my current typing speed which helps me create content while living up to my alias name @speedoholic.

Let me help you with the words written above.

Its Written: “I am speedoholic“.


Well, “Speedoholic” is not a dictionary word. But I made it out of two words.. “Speed” and “Alcoholic”. It means that I am as much addicted to speed as an alcoholic to alcohol. When I give full throttle to my bike, and the fuel flows faster to give maximum energy to the engine… I feel like someone is shouting on me, saying, “Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death”.

I like to do bike stunts. Although I haven’t been doing much since my 2nd year in college. As the coin has two faces, although I enjoy trying these stunts, the expenses on my bike increases proportionally.


This Blog will contain lot of my biking experiences along with my other updates.

I have made this blog because, we learn as much by writing as by reading.

‘People die, but books never die.’

Enjoy Reading..
