Early Life[edit]

Akshay was born to a doctor and a teacher in a Hindu family in Malabar region of Kerala, India. He did his schooling in Sree Sankara Vidyapeetam in Mattanur and later (11th, 12th grades) in Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Kannur where he learned Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. While he was 13 years old, he read Mahatma Gandhi's autobiography, My Experiments with Truth, and that influenced his life philosophy.


Akshay did his MBBS at Mysore Medical College & Research Institute[6]. He then joined Vivekananda Memorial Hospital at Saragur run by Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement as a Resident Medical Officer and as a Fellow in HIV Medicine. After finishing his fellowship in HIV medicine, he moved to Bangalore and based out of PCMH Restore Health started clinical practice, various research activities and also programming.


Akshay won the National Talent Search Examination in 8th grade (2007) along with other lesser known science scholarships. In 2010, while he was in Grade 11, he reached the interview stage of Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana but was unable to qualify. In 2011 he qualified for the Indian National Olympiad in Informatics and got selected to a training camp conducted at The International School Bangalore for selection of the Indian team to the International Olympiad in Informatics.

Akshay is a person interested in almost everything on earth. These include, but are not limited to:

Subject Interest Participation
Artificial Intelligence Creating AI is the purpose of his life Has his own theory of how intelligence arises from the interplay of neurons. Has a bot which runs in whatsapp python-whatsapp-bot on Github
Programming Believes all problems in the world can be solved in python Has never learned a programming language systematically. Thus finds coding without bugs tough
GNU/Linux and Free culture Loves GNU/Linux and knows its strengths. FOSS is the only way human beings can achieve excellence Runs only GNU/Linux on his computer. An IRC volunteer of Mozilla
Social sciences Believes in the power of democracy Is not afraid to voice opinions
Quizzing As is his love for knowledge, so is his love for sharing it Participated and won tens of quizzes while he was in school. When he reached college, the winning percentage decreased, primarily because the kind of quizzes changed from general knowledge to trivia. Still, won second place in one technology quiz in FOSS camp, SJCE with his partner Hitesh Byatroy
Technology Loves tinkering with the latest technology. Believes newer technology will make human life easier Loves his laptop, and android phone. Otherwise, he solves almost all software related problems in most devices of friends.
Health and Fitness When health is lost, everything is lost Goes cycling once in a while
Research Thought he was born to be a scientist when he was in school. Still thinks so Competitive examinations do not count, yet, was once shortlisted for KVPY interview in 11th standard. In college he was shortlisted for ICMR STS for his proposal on "Prevalence and pattern of sexual abuse in college going women in Mysore and its impact on their mental health" but the IEC never gave him approval to go on and conduct his study despite him trying twice. Doing a study on "The Respiratory Effects in Road Construction Workers in Mysore" now
Writing Would love to be an (investigative) journalist later on. Knows how media shapes the public perspective Blogs regularly at many sites, primarily on Blissful Life
Web development Like wikipedia, believes in the power of web, and believes that all codifiable knowledge should be uploaded to the web Runs Learn Learnin', which is his attempt in collecting all his insights in one place. Also, tries to tinker with jquery, and other javascript frameworks like impress.js
Entrepreneurship Thinks that the best way to beat the system is by creating one Always goes on to open source things, and help others for free, which as you'd notice isn't a good business skill
Tennis Loves watching Roger Federer Tried learning in 11th standard. Learned only forehand, stopped due to clash of timing with entrance coaching
Music Boring work should never be done without music Ear phones do not fit his ears
Guitar Wants to be a pro Rarely practises on his second hand guitar
