Doctors For A Cause
🩺 Back in 2017, a couple of college friends and I started a non-governmental organisation called Doctors For A Cause, in Calcutta, my hometown. Currently, it is run by me and an enthusiastic group of young doctors as a registered Trust. We are glad to have achieved a Pan-India reach in spreading education, awareness, and goodwill.

Freezethawed: The Newsletter
💌 I believe, penning down your thoughts, is a personal process, and more importantly, it’s something that should come to you naturally. You can’t compel yourself. Freezethawed is a weekly newsletter that will be mainly the thoughts I’ve pondered upon, over a week, over a day, or just now. And it’ll not be a formulated tell-a-tale. It’ll just be my raw and unfiltered musings. Something that’ll help me connect to all of you.


🎻 I have a keen interest in music theory since my childhood. I’ve earned recognitions from Trinity College, London in Violin and Piano. New instruments, the stories behind them, and the cultures associated have always piqued my interest and I’ve never shied away from warming up to them.

More Stuff:

🎬 Became a Youtuber on a whim, and haven’t regretted it. Currently, I use my channel as a repository for my music videos.

Calcutta Cacophony
📔 Core team of one of Calcutta’s largest youth social media pages: Calcutta Cacophony. Enlightening millennials about some old-world nostalgia.

📷 Have always loved delving into the different subgenres of photography including wildlife, landscape and my recent fad macro-photography.

🏃🏻 I am a running enthusiast and try to take out thirty minutes for a quick run whenever I can. Follow me on Nike Run Club.

📜 I consider myself an Occasional Word Spinner. I don’t mind articulating my opinions if something knacks my interest.

🎨 Some of my free time also goes to Impromptu Sketching, from abstract art to sketching my favourite Dragon Ball- Z character, sketching is another arena where I would like to hone my skills.

-Casey Neistat

A quote by Casey Neistat has inspired me over the years and I’ve tried to embrace anything that intrigues me.
The objective of this website is to learn from every one of you. Because with knowledge comes humility, and we are just puny humans who are nothing but a speck of dust, consumed by the enormous universe.

I’m always open to having cerebral and healthy conversations. So if anything at all, you can contact me via the following links, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
