About the blog –
This is a chemistry blog written by Gauri Nigudkar.This is a place for anyone who is interested in learning chemistry i.e for all ‘Rasayan Rasiks’(people passionate about chemistry).
Since my school days I have been inquisitive about various things , but science and spirituality topped the list.My father is a pharmacist and mother a chemistry professor. So basically , I was born into a family of science enthusiasts. I shared their passion for science and was always excited to learn more. I remember my father teaching me and my sister at home after school. I was a kid who asked questions and got my concepts cleared .My curious disposition helped me learn more and my propensity to learn things in-depth helped me to master the fundamentals quickly.
As days passed, my interest in science kept growing and I began to develop a keen interest in ‘CHEMISTRY’. I was naturally able to comprehend the subject better and so my fondness for it grew too.I decided to get a Master’s degree in the subject and successfully did so! Unlike other students I never studied just to get a good score , but enjoyed what I was learning .I went through various chemistry books from my college library and tried to get a comprehensive overview of all the topics I was studying. Later,I was hoping to either pursue a PhD degree or teach chemistry , but destiny had other plans.It opened new avenues for me and took me on a new path of thespianism – a path of very different chemistries !
Acting was like a god’s gift to me .I enjoyed working in front of the camera and soon got tied up with my assignments. Although I kept busy in a totally different profession, my interest for chemistry never waned.Thanks to internet that I could keep studying just out of love for the subject.
A few days back a thought of writing a blog, relating to chemistry, struck me and here I am beginning to write this blog! Through my blog I intend to share the knowledge, which I have learnt and I am still learning through various sources like chemistry books, journals, videos and google articles , with anybody who might be benefitted by it. The content of my posts comes from varied sources ,which I have gathered over the years and so giving correct references may not be possible sometimes. I have no intentions of plagiarism.
I am not a professional writer so kindly excuse my mistakes. Suggestions,comments without any abusive language are welcome.
A sincere thanks to my parents , teachers and all online sources, which provide so much information to us ! A special mention has to be given to my sister ,Swati Nigudkar, who completed her PhD in organic chemistry from University of Missouri. A very big thank you to my husband Hrishikesh for always encouraging me and helping me with all the technicalities.
Be a perpetual student of life and keep learning..
