[About Asim]

Hi! The name is Asim Shankar. I was born in Peoria, Illinois, USA which is about 150 miles from the Windy City (Chicago) on the shortest day of the year and moved to New Delhi, India when I was 5. The last time I updated this website I was 16 years old and was studying in Modern School, Vasant Vihar.
I enjoy eating junkfood, playing basketball and golf (started learning), sleeping and am in love with a beige box my dad owns.

Some people may call me a nerd, but here's some justfication for being one :-

Jocks vs. Nerds
Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making $178,100 a day, (working or not)!
If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make $18,550 while he's there.
He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the wage hike)
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours.
If you were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, you'd have to do it at the rate of $2 every second.
He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed $33,390 for that round.
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.
He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.

Amazing isn't it? but :

Jordan will have to save 100% of his income for 270 years to have a net worth equivalent to that of William H. "Bill" Gates III

I don't really believe in the supernatural but this is something which will make you ponder :-
Kennedy & Lincoln

Booth ran from the theater.Oswald was caught in a theater.
Booth and Oswald died (Oswald was assasinated, Booth presumably committed suicide) before their trials.

Mail me Besides all that, I read a few books every so often (don't we all). I've tried my luck with musical instruments, but failed. Don't have a sensitive ear. I love to meet people through this electronic medium and if you would like to humour me I would appreciate your gesture to e-mail me.
