About Me

I am a Software Engineer at Browserstack and graduated with a Bachelors of Computer Science and Engineering from IIIT-Hyderabad. I am keen to learn new stuff and increment my frontier of knowledge to new levels. I just like to work hard for something that I want to achieve in life. I like to contribute in Open Source Projects. Created a cool product - StopStalk, and constantly adding more and more features along with solving bugs and extending its reach among Competitive Programmers.
About my nick at many websites raj454raj, Is it a Palindrome? A Double String? I guess you guessed it wrong because frankly I didn't even think of any such reason. Maybe I was too small to think about it :p Maybe I was crazy to not to keep it simple ;) But it is what it is...

I have dreams to fullfill. And they are BIG !
