About me


I am Amit Radha Krishna Nigam.

someday i will wear dark lines over my forehead, will have deep glasses over my eyes, crowded white hairs.
someday people will identify me by my work, read my name, reference my papers and gift my books.
someday friends will remember their days with me, cherish memories and plan reunion.
some day, life would be closing its doors slowly.
some day would be perfect to ask–about me.
