I have bachelors degree in mechanical engineering and been actively participating in political activism since 2018. I am going to start pursuing masters degree in art with specialization in Society and Culture from Humanities and Social Sciences Dept at IIT Gandhinagar. I like to read nonfiction related to history and politics. Apart from that I find music and football quite interesting.
