Tidbits you really do not need to know about Surya:
He is multilingual - Tamil, English, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi
He studied until his undergraduate degree (BSc Mathematics) in Tamil Medium - Subjects were taught in Tamil language including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology (Botany + Zoology)
He has not (officially) studied Biology after the 12th Standard and now he is an Assistant Professor in Bioinformatics
He learned Neural Networks in 2001 as part of his Discrete Mathematics (!) course - though he never predicted it will herald AI/Deep Learning Era we see now
He learned Topology in 2002 - though he never predicted it will herald the TDA = Topological Data Analysis area we see now
He still has a Nirvana t-shirt after 15 years
