HIjal Chatterjee

I'm a lazy guy from the suburbs of Kolkata. I am Bengali but not a fan of maachh-bhaat (Rice with fish) or cigarette. I am a third year college student. I study Electronics & Communication Engineering at jalpaiguri Government Engineering College, which is a government autonomous college in North Bengal. Here is a list of the things I like to do: sleeping, more sleeping, travelling when I have slept enough, reading story books (typically before sleeping) and writing when I don't feel like sleeping. Other things that I like to do cannot be mentioned here. I suck at being a normal human being. I can tell you more stuff about me, but trust me if I do you'll get bored. Oh yea almost forgot to mention, besides sleeping I love to sketch as well, I sketch portraits mostly.
