Hobbies

I hardly do anything other than programming and playing chess. Programming is not only my hobby and passion, but a lot more than that can be spoken into words. Playing chess is other side of the coin which helps to keep my mind fresh.

Chess

Chess is one of the most intellectual game originated in India. It is played on the square board of 64 squares and two opponents with 16 warriors each. The warriors in each side contains 8 Pawns, 2 Knights, 2 Bishops, 2 Rooks, 1 Queen and a King. The aim of the game is to attack the King in a way that it can't escape out of it. This situation is known as checkmate. I play chess since I was four years old. At that time, i was not even aware of all the rules of chess. Well, I am not excellent at it but i believe that i can give atleast a good fight to even the experts. Being a passionate chess player also led me to create the Chess software. I also became the organiser of Chess competition in my university hostel.

Programming

I have started learning programming in May 2003 from NIIT Begusarai. There I have done the course of "C and Data Structure". That was the starting point but i was not satisfied with my knowledge and again I joined a local computer education center in Agra for C programming and Data Structure in my second year of engineering. There I have got a very good appreciation and support. From my second year of engineering, programming became the liesure passtime for me and after that it became everything for me.

Others

Well, In a general case, I am doing nothing more than programming and playing and playing chess. But some of my others activities includes: playing cricket, writing poetry in Hindi and chatting with friends.
