I have enjoyed indulging myself in various hobbies and interests since my childhood. Here’s a few that you may find interesting.
I started writing in 2003. I transferred those write ups online as blogs in 2007. I started with blogspot.com which later became blogger.com.
In 2017, I shifted my blog space to WordPress.com and got my own Domain https://mahe316.com registered. Thus came this website, you are visiting now.
I am an avid music lover and have a diverse choice of genres that I listen to. Like any other Indian, I too have grown up listening to some of the most melodious tunes. I started my YouTube journey in 2009 by posting a few videos from my personal life. In those days, before YouTube was used by Vloggers, in India YouTube was known for hosting music, movies and movie trailers. Many of my oldest videos are Hindi and Bengali songs that were not available on YouTube in those days. I later started using YouTube to post videos from my vacay, my hobbies and my other interests
Android App development
I found my latest passion in making some good learnings from Shri Rama’s life available to masses in digital format with the latest features. With this initiative I aim to make the good learnings of ancient Hindu scriptures available to masses in an easy to access and easy to learn format that should appeal equally to the old and the young. You may install the app on your Android app from this URL- t.ly/mvsn

I have been into philately, collection of postage stamps and First Day Covers(FDCs), since my childhood. This was my first ever hobby. I was lucky to have some good contacts, with whose help I was able to pursue my hobby, despite spending my childhood in one of the remotest places in India.

Home Improvement and Home Automation

Majority of my furniture are custom designed to suit our exact needs. Also, I am a big fan of Home Automation and have already automated majority of electrical devices at my home using either Google Home or Amazon Alexa.
