About Me

I quote from one of my favourite books, “Catch-22” by Joseph Heller.

Some people are born mediocre.  Some people achieve mediocrity.  And some people have mediocrity thrust upon them.  With Major Major it was all the three.

I have a feeling that Major Major was/is/will be a literary allusion of my life past, present and future.  I try to think of myself as a Math Geek, but a mediocre one.  Alas, the insight into the deeper working of this awesome subject eludes me.  I try to think of myself as a Quizzer, but have never won or even come close to winning a major quiz.  I tend to think that I am funny, but I am yet to find a person who laughs at my jokes.  I get a feeling sometimes that I am an intellectual in the making, but time and again, I have been proven wrong.

My name is Arjun N Bharadwaj.  I am right now in my final year of Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras, officially specializing in Power Systems and Power Electronics, but unofficially in the art of making extremely bad puns.  I was born in Mysore, but I have hardly lived there, most of my years being spent in Bangalore, followed by Chennai.  I am mostly known around IITM by my nickname “Samaadhi”-and hence the bad pun in the title.  Of course, the name of the blog-link is half sigma, which is by itself a pun on Sum-aadhi (Geddit?)  Boneywasawarriorwayayix is an allusion to Napoleon, Asterix and the times of yore-frankly, I just liked the name.  Nothing high funda about it.

I used to blog at http://www.arjunbwj.blogspot.com before and for variety of reasons, the chief among them being laziness, it has been defunct now for almost an year.  I hope this blog would serve as a tool to express my views and comments on the world as perceived by me and maybe when I am older and hopefully wiser, I will look back into these relatively simple days and have a good laugh.
