Why run? Running can change your life. It’s certainly changed mine. It’s brought me friends, taken me to amazing places, given me a whole new perspective on the streets I travel through every day.

Running can be sheer, bursting-into-song joy or heart-pounding effort, sometimes on the same run. Pushing yourself in a race can be brutal masochism, worth every second when you cross the line and realise you’ve beaten your best time. Or it can just be just floating easily along, watching the ground beneath you recede, marvelling at the capacity of the human body to adapt and improve.

Running clears the mind – something about the flow of oxygen to the muscles, not the brain, simplifies the most thorny problem. Running can be blissful solitude, and the most social of sports.

Running means different things for different people, from park pootlers to supersonic sprinters, but I believe there is something in this wonderful sport for everyone.

I'm a hardworking, simple guy and still looking at the world with a childlike wonder. I run, hikes, over-drink tea and coffee. I am a hardcore coder and I love to do that. And if I hadn't gone into coding, I probably would have gone into painting and cooking or investment banking. Being a Bengali, I eat a lot and love to play football. I am a big fan of world movies and a great admirer of Bergman, Kurosawa and Tarantino.
