Hello everyone! I’m Aditya Sharma, a 22 year old, living in Bengaluru. I am an Analyst at a Fintech company. Boring you say? Scroll and be surprised! 🙂
HOW DO YOU DO YOU?
If I had to mention any three things that make me happy, I’d say God, killing time with friends, and definitely playing Video Games. In fact, I’ve actually been trying to create my very own Video Game, lately!
I’m a huge people person. I love seeing others happy, and I can honestly say that I mingle with any kind of person!
If my life was a book, it would be called, ‘Why I do things I shouldn’t, but because I want to.’
SPONTANEOUS, QUIRKY ME
The most spontaneous thing that I have ever done is be in charge of Nvidia’s Flagship Exhibition. It was great fun.
A quirky thing about me is that I buy random toys that I find mildly interesting. And then obsess over it for a week. Strange, isn’t it? It’s kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. Buying and obsessing over a toy for just about a week.
I’m very grateful for my parents, mentors, and friends, especially Nikhil, Rahul, and Varun, for being there no matter what. When I’m low, I talk to them or other friends, listen to music, or keep myself busy, and I’m grateful for that.
I’m also grateful for this 9th grader back when I was in frigging UKG, who was totally my sugar mommy, haha! She’d take care of me like no one else did (excluding my parents, of course) and I still think about her and thank her in my head to this day.
BEST ADVICE EVER
The best advice I’ve ever heard of is from the Director of KGB: “Trust but verify.”
If I had only 10 years to live, I’d probably live like a house cat.
Dear 15 year old self… don’t worry, it’s all still good. 🙂
Dear 60 year old self…is it all still good?

YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORIES?
Some of my favourite memories are about things like the Bhagwat with my grandparents, or the day my dad got me this amazing train model set when I was a child. I legit cried.
I also have a few not so favourite memories that stuck with me anyway, like the time when this huge bug decided to invade my plate when we were in a forest resort. I didn’t eat for the rest of the day.
FINDING HOOGAH DURING COVID
It’s been really tough for everyone lately, and for me, the toughest of it all is working from home without my colleagues, but it’ll all gradually get better with time.
I’ve realised that humans are stupid – especially the people who don’t follow rules and don’t stay home when the world is going through this pandemic, but if we all take the necessary precautions, the situation will get better in no time.
I find pockets of happiness during COVID in talking to people, even if virtually, and learning new skills like virtualization and networking.
Recently, I’ve also had so much more time to understand the meaning of things – I’ve found the meaning of god and religion.
Don’t lose hope. We’ll get through this. We’re all in this together. 🙂
