About Me

Hi, I am Ali Sadhik Shaik, Product Manager by profession and Curator and Blogger by passion. I am from Yerraguntla, a small dusty town in Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh and currently residing in Bangalore. I do have my share of failure stories and struggles to reach where I am today. Through this blog, I write about technology, gadgets, news opinions, hunt for inspirational and interesting videos, articles and links.

I am married, I like traveling and reading books. My last trip was a solo trip to Thailand and Srilanka and I am currently reading Smartcuts by Shane Snow refer to my reading list.
