I’m Nishu Jain: A geek, cursed with little creativity.
Professionally, I’m a Software Engineer who likes to play with data, algorithms, and especially, Artificial Intelligence/Deep Learning.
I speak mostly Python but, have polyglottic tendencies. I believe in developing real-world products, and not just doing competitive programming (although I’m pretty decent at it).
And apart from being a full-fledged Tech-Geek, I’ve got a few real hobbies … like —
As you can see, I’m writing on Medium … da?
I sometimes do freelance writing as well, so if you’ve something interesting for me, ping me on Fiverr. …

“Some things are meant to be hacked!”
A couple of days back, I installed a government app (cannot disclose which, because they haven’t released the patch yet) in which I found a severe vulnerability lurking around the corner of a simple OTP (One-Time Password) mechanism.
I don’t know whether it was a mistake of a programmer, or was it intentionally rigged, but it looked pretty suspicious to me.
I saw “patterns” in OTPs.
Allow me to explain …
For those who don’t know, OTP mechanisms are pretty common in Indian Apps, where they…

“You need to get off of those video games! There’s nothing valuable in those time-wasters!” — Every Parent Ever
Have you ever heard your mom or dad scream this to you as they try to get you to turn off your video game and get back to “real life?” How did you respond? Did you simply turn off the game and give in? Or did you keep on playing, knowing that one day the skills you learn from your ‘time-wasting” video games will actually pay off?

We’ve all been there. A family holiday dinner barely gets to the second…

So that’s why caregivers need to be prepared for everything that caring for the elderly and chronically ill people can bring.
Here, I want to talk about caregiving philosophies and best practices that focus specifically on caring for elderly…
The sound of hooves echoed throughout the dead of night. Distant shouts could be heard and that caused the two girls, Rose and Helena, to huddle up in the wooden carriage. The speed of the horses leading it forced the interior of the wagon to shake, and the wooden parts to creak as if they were screaming in agony. The two girls, however, were mostly silent, running on adrenaline and the omnipresent fear of certain death should the carriage slow down, leading to their capture.
Rose never wanted to let her sister…
