  • What I believe in


    We are not the highest version of ourselves which we can imagine. We are the lowest version of ourselves which we can accept.


    What Others say


    Pragmatic and meticulous, Nikhil thrives in chaos. One can't help but look upto him! A music aficionado, he loves to cook (obsessed over his cutlery) and is your go-to source for a radically honest opinion.
