About

Hello! I am Picklu. Engineer by profession, artist by chance, ambitious by nature and Indian by birth.

I am an accomplished software engineer based in Bangalore. When not at work, I play billiards regularly, chess occasionally and football virtually (yeah!!!..in PS4). Given a chance, I would love to explore Europe and Australia. Given a choice, I would love to try all Indian cuisine.
