What’s this blog about?
I would like to quote myself from my very first blogpost.
“Life is one hell of a journey, and probably the only one worth writing about.. I had to choose a platform for documenting my experiences in this journey.. That’s why I chose blogging.
I hope to write about anything that even remotely touches me, anything that makes me feel life’s worth living, anything I find inspiring..
I hope to post lotsa tales, lotsa reviews ,lotsa experiences of my own as well as lotsa other interesting stuff which I may find while browsing the web..
I hope, the language wouldn’t be a barrier in translating my experiences into words.
I hope I can translate even the most subtle feeling with minutest details…
Why the name Random Walk of Life?
The idea for this blog came when I was at LTC, doing a night out, working on a simulator of the linux kernel Scheduler during my internship. I was reading about Markov chains, probability distributions and Random walks that time. The term Random walk was very appealing and I wanted to document the whole experience of writing the simulator. Sadly, that particular post never got written, but the name stuck.
