The Palan Family-Tree – The Start.

Born and raised in Ghatkopar, Mumbai - India. Blessed with a sweet family to whom I owe everything. So, introducing the Palan Family-Tree, first come my grandparents Mr. Babulal and Mrs. Vasanti Palan who are no less than my parents, my mom Mrs. Bhawana and my dad Mr. Anil Palan, my uncle Mr. Haresh Palan and his wife Mrs. Jyoti Palan. And my siblings Khusboo, Karan and Gaurav without whom my childhood would have been incomplete and boring!

School + Friends

Completed my schooling in Pune Vidya Bhawan High School,Mumbai - India. Along the years, made many friends, bonded with few and the others left. Cheers to the ones who stayed; Dharav, Kunal, Kashyap, Neel and Deep. Ever since we met, our friendship has just grown.

Aug 1996- May 2008

Study – Exams – Party Hard – Repeat, YES!

The most awaited phase of my life had already begun. College! Earned my Diploma Degree in Information Technology at Shah & Anchor Kuttchii Polytechnic. My technical learning phase began with programming languages like C, C++ and then eventually learnt JAVA. During this period, I also got an opportunity to learn Databases and Visual Studio. In 2011, I started pursuing my Engineering career in Computer Engineering stream at KJSCE (Affiliated to University of Mumbai, India). I consider it to be one of the best phases of my life.

Aug 2008- May 2014

Self-Learning Phase, because it was hard-luck!

Time flew by, and within a blink of an eye the Degree life was over. Responsibilities started to pour in. The Job-Hunt phase had begun, this was one of the toughest, stressful phases; were in I had to keep my patience up-tight. Hard-Luck, I guess! Couldn’t find a job. Eventually, I started learning Web Technologies from scratch, enrolled for an online course which was based on Front End Web Development by Udemy and also learnt PHP. Developed a few websites, I freelanced!

Aug 2014- February 2016

United States, it is!

Craving to learn something new and interesting had already begun. Which in a way, acted as a driver to push me in the direction of pursuing my Master’s Program of Study. The applications were all sent out to a couple of colleges, now was the time to wait! Finally, in the month of June, 2016, I received an acceptance admit from George Mason University, Virginia, USA. It all happened in a snap of a moment. First passport stamp, and I flew! (Oh yes, the United States of America. A place where dreams come true!). Started pursuing my Master’s study in Computer Science field.
