Who am I?

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.

~Wolverine, The End.

I love to write and that is why I write. My ambition is to become a teacher, to make a difference in at least a single person’s life. I believe in giving motivation and encouragement to those who are in need of it.

I’m neither a movie nor a music addict although I watch and hear them respectively. I mostly watch English and Jackie chan movies as well as hear western songs. Bryan Adams is my favourite music artist and Summer of 69 is my favourite song.

I watch cartoons. My favourite is Transformers, the movie, 1986.

I like to read. Novels, short stories, comics whatever it be. Rather than preferring an author, I usually enjoy the writing based on how they write it. A few of my favourite stories are:

  1. Round the world in eighty days by Jules Verne.
  2. Lord Of The Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien.
  3. Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
  4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
  5. Foundation series by Isaac Asimov.

I read comics too and my favourite heroes are Batman and Wolverine. However, a certain comic has found a special place in my heart. Here let me request everyone who comes across this page to read it. The comic is Calvin and Hobbes.

I’m a B. Tech, Computer Science Engineer. I studied at NSS College of Engineering, Palakkad.

I support the free software movement and the open source development methodology. I use Debian.

I love sharing ideas and thoughts. I believe there are two parts for a man. His skills and his beliefs. Whatever skills you have and whatever you do with it, will never be complete until you know why you have it and what you are doing it for. I see that in terms of computers where Open source is the skill/technical part, what Linus contributed to the world. Whereas Free software is the belief/philosophy part, what Stallman contributed to the world. Together do they attain completeness.

I’m the first-chairman and co-founder of Abacus.

You won’t find me on any social networking sites. 

“Probably the one who draws the least attention when you cast a quick glance around the group. But say “hello” to this unassuming young man and suddenly the place is illuminated with his smile. As everyone starts talking and participating, again you might find yourself forgetting about Haris’s presence, but once again you are jolted back to attend to him as he reads out his piece of writing and captures your imagination. What a great combination… a quiet nature and a love for words. Haris introspects, observes and then bursts forth in eloquent prose.”

  3. Came to know about you from Adhil. And about your book, its simply great.

    And these lines make perfect sense to me: “Whatever skills you have and whatever you do with it, will never be complete until you know why you have it and what you are doing it for”. (and of course, the examples too).
