President Pranab Google doodle: It is good for the psychology of the Republic that we will soon have a President known to break into laughter once in a while, given that our Prime Minister is notorious for his deadpan expression (also because many of you could be ROFLing at the very sound of President Poltu). http://cut.tc/BC

Introduction

My school leaving certificate spells my name as Soumyadip Choudhury (সৌম্যদীপ চৌধুরী), some call me The Chaiwallah. I work and live in what is generally referred to as Delhi (I work in Noida and stay in Ghaziabad).

My work profile labels me as a journalist (of the Internet kind) and my areas of specialisation includes technology. The Internet is the primary area of personal and professional interest and I also build products for the Web. I currently work for Network18 as a New Editor (amongst other things) with IBNLive.com.

In the eight years of empoyment, I have worked with HT Media, Career Launcher, The Times Group, NDTV and Network18 in various capacities.

As a chronicler of popular culture via advertising, movies, photos and more, I maintain a popular blog, Cutting the Chai, since 2005.

Have been hard-wired to everything tech since childhood, I have a penchant for making and repairing (and occasionally breaking) things. My wife and family suspect that I am secretly married to my laptop.

Was born and brought up in Shillong and that is the place I still call home (in the physical world).
