About My Blog

It feels odd to do this after 40 posts, but I guess I have been missing this post since a long time; so here it comes – what is my blog all about.

I’m basically a software developer @ heart, so essentially this blog will revolve around developing and using software. Being a freelancer & an entrepreneur I do get myself involved with various events & forums that are related to technology or entrepreneurship. I occasionally write about these events. I also sometime write about my thoughts; on anything and everything related to work. Lastly I occasionally write about startups (mostly around Delhi region) that I come across and are doing interesting work.

As also predicted in my introductory post here (more than a year ago), the frequency of my posts is not all that good. In this last 13 odd months, I have written 40 posts i.e. ~ 3 posts a month on an average. However since most of my posts are going to be about software they would be relevant for quite some time.

About Me

My Name is Guneet Sahai & I’m a Freelance Software Developer based out of Gurgaon (India), working towards my goals. An engineering graduate from IIT Roorke – class of 1999, I’m also a co-founder for chahiye.info which is a portal that intends to offer bouquet of services.

am just another Techie from IIT [Roorkee], who has enjoyed working at Startups since 1999 & is now addicted to them.

I’m passionate about developing software. My experience has been mostly in developing back-end pieces that are often not visible. I get my kicks out of writing thread safe code that performs well at high loads. I have always been working at small startups throughout my career and I love that so much that I don’t think I will be able to work in a larger established co. now

I’m a happily married man, father to two children settled along with my parents in Gurgaon, India. Born in New Delhi (India) I have spent most of my 31 years of life in New Delhi. I have been living in Gurgaon since last three years and plan to settle down here now.

Hello World

This being my first post ever, it makes sense to introduce my self. This post intends to provide this introduction & also would also give an idea on what to expect in my future posts. Read on ……

Who am I

My name is Guneet. An engineer by degree with around 8 years of professional experience (at the time of writing this) in building software products. Hold a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from IIT Roorkee (which was earlier known as University of Roorkee). Have worked in 3 start-up organizations in different roles, developing products with Java Programming Language.

Why am I writing this Blog


I’m no blogger & I’m certainly not important enough for my writing to be read by others. In short, I’m not writing this for others to read (but if you are reading this, then I have nothing against it – please go ahead). I believe writing this would force me to introspect some aspects of my-self & come out with simple answers to simple questions that recently confronted me. In other words, I’m doing this to crystallize some my thoughts.

I keep dreaming (with my eyes wide open) about things & keep thinking about my dreams, but unfortunately these remain as thoughts which come and go & do not translate into actions. Through this blog, I also intend to capture these thoughts and to act on them otherwise dreams would remain what they are & would lose their significance.

You might wonder that I could have captured these thoughts in a word document and my goal would have been met – then why Blog? I actually thought about this and decided against it. Reason(s)

a) I would at some stage question the usefulness of this practice. A word Document would be much easier to ignore (even with good content) than a Blog.

b) Within hearts of heart, I want the world to know about my dreams/thoughts.


Being a father to two & having a role in the work place that requires more than 100% of my time, it doesn’t leave me with a lot of time (like all others around me) to blog. Therefore, the frequency of my posts would be irregular. In certain period of time you might find a couple of posts in short span, while I might be missing on this front for a long time at some other time. I guess this would be the usual & typical to most bloggers.
