MangaWriter

This project was my workaround for achieving essentially the same effect as sIFR at a time when I didn't know sIFR existed.

MangaWriter is a small JavaScript function combined with images of alphabets (A-Z) made using a font commonly found in Japanese Manga comics. I initially used it for a fancy front page for my website.
This script is useful in a situation where you'd like to use a non-standard font in a webpage without making users download the font (either manually or automatically as an embed). It was my workaround for the inability of Firefox to process embedded fonts.

Akshat and Chris Compiler (ACC)

In 2005 I took the Compilers class offered by Prof. John Donaldson at Oberlin College. I teamed up with partner Chris Fry ('06) on the ACC. It's definitely not the best C compiler around, but it was written completely in Java and compiles code for Sun SparcOS. The source code is available on http://code.google.com/p/simple-semantic-desktop/source/browse/trunk/pha...

Sai Baba's Website


With a tiny bit of divine inspiration, I made a website on the saint Sai Baba of Shirdi. It contains the text of the Sai Satcharitra and links to commonly sought media about Sai Baba.

Khamaghani.com was originally planned to be an all-encompassing portal of Rajasthan with some focus on tourism-related information. I was commissioned to work on it by RajCOMP, a consulting agency run by the Rajasthan Government, but the project fell through the cracks. The website currently remains in its pilot stage as it was in 2000, but will soon be seeing a revamp.
