A few facts about myself :

My name is Mouksh Gogoi. 

I am an 18-year-old who's very enthusiastic about chess, even though I suck at the game.

My other hobbies include speedcubing, football, performing in dramas and skits, computer coding to mention a few. 

My taste in movies and music differs drastically from that of my peers. I am a fan of slow-paced melodious Bollywood songs from the 90s and early 2000s. Songs from that era were far better than the crap remixes Bollywood produces these days. 

I have been a very studious kid since my childhood. And I absolutely love Maths and Physics even though they have ruined countless nights of mine. I love chemistry to a certain extent as well, but I am annoyed by the exceptions it offers in its trends. It's a subject that sometimes relies more on memorization, than logic and understanding. And the subject that I love the most is Computer Science. It has its own beauty. It's a subject that's constantly evolving and enables you to be creative and dynamic which makes me a fan of it.

I am hyper Patriotic. And a nationalist.

A die-hard fan of the Indian Air Force. I aspire to join it when I grow up. That's my main ambition. My grandfather is a retired flying officer. That was an important factor that influenced me to fall in love with the IAF. 

I am someone who is always keen to discuss politics. I am not an expert though. So feel free to personally message me any time you want to discuss anything. Personally, I am more or less a centrist. I tend to have a liberal mindset on some aspects and a conservative one on the other ones. I try to avoid associating myself with either the left-wing or the right-wing, since these terms are vague in my opinion, and their meaning changes depending on the country you reside in. Though if I were to chose one of them, in the context of Indian politics, I would go with the right that's close to the centre and not the far right. 

I come from a Hindu family but am an atheist myself. If you are reading this, then I caution you to never preach any sort of religion to me. Because I absolutely hate religion. I respect the beliefs of those with religion because you have the right to have your own belief. But I love festivals, even if they are somehow related to religion. Because no matter what, they essentially bring happiness and joy. I celebrate as many festivals as I can. Be it Diwali, be it Christmas, be it Eid or Holi. 

I am a free thinker. I am very much in favour of absolute freedom of speech with the only limit being incitement and promotion to violence. I am strictly against blasphemy. If one's feelings are hurt and affected by what's being said by someone else, he/she just need to ignore it. I am also an LGBTQ ally. Let everyone live their life the way they want unless they harm you.

I can't exactly remember when I started playing chess. I probably first learnt the basic rules of the game (not all) when I was 10. It was my grandfather who taught me the game. I played one or two games with him back then. Of course, my performance was miserable. I remember trading my queen for two pawns. But since then I left the game. And I got back to chess in 2020. When I saw two people playing chess in my school. The Queen's Gambit series too further helped me develop a deeper interest in the game. I was back into chess for a brief period of time in 2019 too, but that's almost negligible.
