About This Blog

This is a general purpose blog. I intend to write about different topics which I find interesting.


Topics of the Blog

The main focus of this blog will be on medical sciences, books and computers. I'll write about other topics from time to time, but majority of the contents will be in these three categories.

The posts in the medical sciences category will include my perspective into clinical research. This category will also have posts about medical education as well as interesting medical topics. I'll be writing about the things I find intriguing about the medical sciences.

The posts in the books category will be about the books I have written and my reasons for writing them. There might be occasional book reviews in this category.

The posts in the computers category are mainly about GNU/Linux and computer programming. Some posts are about everyday computing necessities, such as file sharing, encryption etc. I like to explore the world of computing and when I find something exciting I'll be writing about it.

There might even be some guest posts from time to time.

Most importantly this blog is my vessel of exploration. Every time I find something in life worth writing about I'll be sure to post it here.

I'd be very glad if you leave comments on posts. It makes me feel appreciated.
