    Rewinding back to my first day at IIT. It was you with whom I had my first lunch in Himalaya. Assuming you as a shy guy, I made all the talk and tried to make you feel better ( After spending 4 years with you, now I know, you took me for an idiot on that day! ). I was so wrong about you.
    Now: A lot has changed about you and what surprises me is the love you developed towards books and the skills that you have developing gradually these days. Many of the pics that you took really deserve an appreciation and I wish you all the best in taking up this newly skill of yours to next level gradually!
