Hi and welcome! I’m Chetana, a Namma Bengaluru girl with nothing more than curiosity and dreams. Welcome to my little closet – a space where I let my ideas splish, splash and splatter.

Apart from the random writing that I do, I am also a writer at the Research Matters at Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru.

I get to write about the latest researches in various Indian research institutions. Its been a great experience as it not only helps me stay up-to-date with the development in science but also meet the amazing scientists and teachers. The curiosity and the love for science in them is always so infectious. Most of my articles are here.

who i am

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been coming up with ideas or projects or goals to take on. I find a lot of satisfaction in creating something new and seeing it through until the end. I like to keep it simple, I love to constantly be learning and growing as a person.

I’m happiest when I’m with my family and friends.

I’m a perfectionist. A night-person. I love animals and nature. I like to laugh and love.

I am an Engineer by training and an Artist by heart. I am mostly found sketching, singing, dancing or watching movies and TV shows. Oh yes, also photography! I am a curious soul who loves to try new things especially those that sharpen my creative side.

And.. that pretty much sums it up!
