An M.Tech with specialization in computer science, in more than three decades of work-life on telecom and computers, often he had to solve problems thought to be unsolvable. Late in his work-life he started a journey of discovering how he solved the problems in mysterious ways. Out of the search was born an overlay subject of Innovative problem solving that he taught. He went on to apply the collection of new techniques and methods on maths first and later on intriguing puzzles. His website and discovering useful patterns and methods are his continuing passions.
