Mover. Maybe this is the word that best defines me. From my childhood, I have been shifting from one place to another. Every four years or so, I had a new place, new school, new teachers, new set of friends. Being in the same college for four years, I have started feeling the familiar itching.
I am someone who’s constant challenge is to keep looking for new things that interests me. I get bored easily. Sample this: I have got tired of Game of Thrones (after Season 3), Breaking Bad (after Season 2) and recently, Sherlock (after Season 3). (I confess that the first two I left because my favorite characters got killed) . Further, true to my evolutionary gender role, I keep on moving on from one being of desire to another. (Frankly, I never got the chance to do otherwise, despite best of my efforts.)
But I cannot be a true mover. If I were, I would have moved on from even this philosophy! This brings me to my other aspect. Sticker. Being a researcher, it’s part of my job to be good at sticking to a problem. (Or maybe it’s the other way round: I chose researcher line because I am a Sticker) I love running marathon. Okay, not exactly a marathon. I haven’t been able to run that long so far. My personal best is of 5 km. But you get the point. I love to dig in and fight against the odds. Whenever I run, there are voices in my head (recently the voice belongs to my last being of desire) that shout that I won’t be able to complete it. Then I remind myself of the pristine feeling of the final moments of the race– sweat is sweet.
As on 18th July,2012
I am someone who likes to identify oneself as somebody who keeps challenging himself . I hate to sit idle but that doesn’t mean I hate sleeping! I am curious about almost everything and passionate about Science, especially Physics. In my leisure times, I love watching good movies, chit-chatting with friends, writing Hindi poems, reading books and newspaper The Hindu, watching and performing plays. One more thing, I like to befriend complete strangers.
Belonging to India, I am Bihari by descent. Not only have I traveled to many cities of India, but also experienced these cities because of considerable time spent there. And because of so many shifts in my place of residence, I learned to adjust to new environment and interact with strangers.
I guess this much will do for now.
Namaste! I am Mohit Pandey pursuing BS-MS in Physics in IISER-Kolkata .

Who am I is a question that has troubled a lot of philosophers. I won’t delve much into it but it’s tempting to looking into one related issue.
I realized 2-3 months later that one’s perspective of his own being changes with time. And I wanted to take note of that. So, I have decided that I’ll keep on rewriting this page and also keep a record of previous ones.
