I was born and brought up in Assam, a beautiful state in the north eastern part of India. My father is a retired school teacher and my mother is working as a head of a state govt run Middle English school.
My schooling started in a Lower Primary School in Raha, a place near to Guwahati, the capital of Assam. Then, as my parents shifted, we moved to our present permanent address. It is a beautiful village with all the schools, starting from primary to high school and a good college, named B.H.College. Til fourth standard I studied in our village primary school. The name of the school was Kahdowa Bordoloi Primary School. When I was promoted to fifth standard, I was sent to a boarding school called Girish Vidyapeeth. It was basically an Aryan School following all the old Hindu principles. Sanskrit was a compulsory subject there. From my class eight I started staying with my maternal uncles. The reason being the High School of that village was well known and my mother studied in the same high school called Pachania High School.
In 1991, I passed HSLC Examination with flying colors. I became the first student of that school who secured first division with star marks and stood first in the Abhayapuri Zonal High School Exam Board, a centre from where thousands of students appear in the board exam every year. As a result of this, I was felicitated with many awards and prize money. In 1991, I joined prestigious Cotton College in Guwahati, a premier college in the North East India, for my 10+2 level education in science stream. In the second year of my 10+2 level education, I took transfer to B.H.College, my local college, in the same stream and started studying from home. In 1993, I passed 10+2 with First division and distinction in Maths. I was qualified in the JAT (Joint Admission Test) conducted by DTE (Director of Technical Education), Assam and opted for Bachelor of Engineering(B.E.) course in Computer Science & Engg (CSE) from Jorhat Engg College, a govt engineering college established in 1960, under Dibrugarh University, Assam. In 1997, I passed B.E. in CSE with First class.
At the beginning of my career, I joined in a small computer training institute as an instructor and in the mid of 1998, I started working as a guest lecturer in the North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology (NERIST), Arunachal Pradesh, India. In NERIST, apart from teaching students of Bachelor of Technology (Computer Science & Engg) course, I guided students in their major projects too. Interestingly, I found some of my students who were of the same age with me then. In 1999, I got a permanent lecturer post in the Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology, an AICTE approved engineering college in Sikkim, India.
In 2001, I got married to Leena. In 2002, I got a fellowship from Sikkim Manipal University of Health, Medical and Technological Sciences to pursue my master degree. I joined Tezpur University, a Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt of India run university, as a student. There I spent two years pursuing for my Masters of Technology (M.Tech) in Information Technology (IT). In 2004, I was conferred M.Tech in IT by Tezpur University with First Class and distinction.
After passing out, I joined Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology again. In 2005, I was promoted to the Reader post and became Head of the Information Technology dept. In the same year my son Deonta was born. Amusingly, Deonta's date of birth is 05-05-05! I enrolled myself for Ph.D. work in Jadavpur University, Kolkata in the second half of 2006.
In 2006, I joined TATA Consultancy Services (TCS), Mumbai as an IT Analyst. For more than two years in TCS, I was working in the Performance Engineering Research Centre with the role of a Scientist R&D. I joined ABB India Corporate Research Centre on 17th November, 2008.
I have, so far, published and presented more than ten research papers in various national and international conferences (including IEEE and LNCS). I was actively involved in the WANem project (refer to http://wanem.sourceforge.net). I also visited abroad for network consulting purpose. My areas of interest are Wireless Sensor Network & Security, Network and System Performance Analysis, Multi core, Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining.
In 2008, I was awarded FOSS INDIA AWARD 2008 by 'Linux for You' magazine. For WANem project we also became top 10 finalists in the Sourceforge.Net community choice award.
My hobby is writing poetries in my mother tongue, i.e., Assamese Language. I also maintain a community website (URL of the site is http://aai.ind.in) encouraging new poets for writing poetries in the Assamese language.
