I am Saikat Basak, self taught hacker and geek, currently living with my parents near Kolkata, India. I have a B.Sc. in Physics and currently pursuing Masters in Computer Application. My passions include programming, painting, trekking, rock climbing, martial arts and Star Wars. I strongly believe in the Hacker Attitude that a hacker is a person who can build things and is a part of the shared culture of expert programmers and networking wizards. I love to promote the use of Free Software, GNU/Linux and other free Unix like operating systems.
