Popular Science  - 
Entanglement is one of the strangest phenomena predicted by quantum mechanics, the theory that underlies most of modern physics. It says that two particles can be so inextricably connected that the state of one particle can instantly influence the state of the other, no matter how far apart they are.

Carbon Upcycling
Imagine a world with little or no concrete. Would that even be possible? After all, concrete is everywhere—on our roads, our driveways, in our homes, bridges and buildings. For the past 200 years, it's been the very foundation of much of our planet.

Scouting Profile
        I have completed about 12 Proficiency (Merit) Badges: Cook, Pioneer, Citizen, Games Leader, Sanitation Promoter, Star Man, Ecologist, Soil Conservator, Nutrition Educator, Ambulance Man, Secretary, Camper. (This certainly will not be the end.)
        I have also participated in many social service programmes from Anti-Leprosy Day Programme to Cleanliness Campaign, Tree Plantation to Preservation of Greenery, 'STOP' Child Labour to Drug Awareness programme, RainWater Harvesting Programme to Non-Violence Day Walk, etc. I have marched in the 65th Republic Day Parade at Marina Beach in front of Chief Minister and the Governor of the State.

My Experiments:
  • Have done an Arduino program which interfaces with my Linux System and receives infrared signals from a Sony TV remote to control the system.
  • Have created an Arduino sketch that automatically senses the surrounding luminosity using an LDR and adjusts the brightness of the LED. It lights bright when the surrounding is dimmer and vice versa.
  • Have created a blog about Scouting and made a complete UI makeover to make it a responsive site under all device resolutions.
  • Have created a nifty script (Shell) to instantly convert pictures of all formats into the Open Webp format which is 40% lesser in size with the same quality.
  • Am creating a motion sensing web camera, that tracks my gestures to perform tasks in my computer using the Open Computer Vision library (OpenCV)
  • Am practicing Blindfold Speedcubing and One Handed Solving with my Dayan Zhanchi. 
  • Have successfully cracked a WEP Wireless Network with AirCrack-ng tools.
  • Have Reverse-tethered Android Phone to laptop using bluetooth.
  • Have run the Android apps on Chrome using ArChon runtime on linux.
  • Have designed and developed a Material Design web app with AngularJS.
