About Me


My name is Jaykishan Mutkawoa or simply Nitin. This blog is simply about my passion for Linux and Open source softwares though sometimes, i feel to blog about Space explorations or stuffs i came across that i find interesting. I have been participating in Open source and Linux meet ups since years back. I am currently working as Cloud Solutions Engineer at Orange Cloud for Business – Orange Business Services. I live in Mauritius, a little island in the Indian Ocean sadly with just 1Mbps internet speed.

I am extremely curious about Space explorations and exo-planetary research such as the Kepler projects. Science, Psychology or even Neuroscience are the topics that i like to adventure around.
