Who am I?
I am what I am; a simple minded simple person provided you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity! I always try to enjoy life as it comes to me. I have proclivity to learn new things that come across me in my day to day life. Failures never matters to me much compared to what I learn from them. I always try new ways of thinking the same thing not only in the interest of finding a simpler way but also to learn more about the thing. I am one of the persons who prefers die to live rather live to die. I think there is a very thin line between Science and Philosophy as both can be denoted as either sides of a coin, one help in finding out the truth another gives up new ways of finding out the same, both the things have great significance in my life. I believe myself to be honest also friendly in dealing with others. Beauty in various forms not only appeals me but also inspires me to a great extent. One can see some of those inspirations in my paintings; this would be one of the reasons that dragged me into the world of research.

Am I Crazy!
I am big fan of Indina Film Music. Anyone can read my blog on Indian Film Music ( http://www.amitavadas.com/wordpress/2010/03/31/indian-film-music/ ) I did lots of sudy regarding the evolution of Indian Film music.
Besides those stuffs I love lots of singers and vocalist like Lata Mangeskar, Kishore Kumar, Md. Raffi, Rashid Khan, Pandit Ajaya Chakrabarty. Very hard to make a complete list!
I love every genre of music like classical, semi-classical, rock, jazz, instrumental and just everything provided the music should good.
My alltime fevourite instrumental is Havana by Kenny G. Listen to it!
As like common Bengali I deffinitely love to read Tagore, Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, Satyajit Roy, Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, Manik Bandopadhyay and so on. The modern writers I love to read are Samaresh Basu, Samaresh Majumder, Shankar etc.
To become a researcher I get motivated by several Sci-Fictions during my childhood. One of my favourite writer is Narayan Sanyal. One of the best and most popular Sci-Fictions by him is Nakshatraloker Debatatma [নক্ষত্রলোকের দেবতাত্মা], is based on the transformation of human race from primitive creature to civilized intelligent species controlling the whole earth. Then it deals with Jupiter exploration and a super intelligent Computer HAL. The three parted book is a inspiration of 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke. In his book, Sanyal named HAL as Jantra-Na (যন্ত্র না ) , in my mother tongue Bengali, it ambiguously means 'not a machine' (যন্ত্র না ) as well as 'pain' (যন্ত্রনা ).
I love travelling, living across cultures. Being fortunate enough to travel the world so far horizontally: East to West. During my doctoral study I travelled so many Asian countries like Singapore, Japan, China, Japan, Thailand and Korea. After finishing my PhD I moved to Europe. I travelled so many countries in Europe and Scandinavia. I really love this continent for its nature and people then went back to Bangalore, my own country for a very short time and now living in USA. It's truly an interesting journey so far.....I do believe that.....life is all about journey....and realization.....!!!
