"I don't know anything, but I do know that everything is interesting if you go into it deeply enough" - Richard Feynman.

Born and raised in the geologically dynamic country of India, the fascination of how nature works came naturally to me. Trekking through the Himalayas, I was often nonplussed by the fact that all this spectacular topography was created by a collision which is still existent. And that is just one part of the myriad of processes happening on the surface and inside the Earth. 
I am particularly allured by the role of mantle in explaining some of these phenomena using geophysical tools available to us.
