🚗 I'm moving to the Himalayan foothills!
I'm in the middle of moving, so long Vizag! 👋I'm at my ancestral home in Bhubaneswar at the moment and missing Bangalore weather a lot! Being home and having a change of scenery is sweet though. I'll be moving again in a couple weeks to Kalimpong, and I'm sooo looking forward to that. 😄
Thanks to everyone who checked out my repo, I created a bunch of issues on my repo. Compared to last year, this year's Hacktoberfest seems to be a much better experience for maintainers. 🤞
