About Srikanta Mondal

Personal background

Early Life and Upbringing

I’m Srikanto Mondal, also known by the nickname Vaskor Mondal, and I’m from the town of Naihati in West Bengal.

I was born on September 1, 1991, making me 33 years old. I completed my high school education at Naihati Mahendra High School in 2009.

Those years in Naihati were crucial for me, laying the groundwork for my future. My journey began in the small town of Naihati, where I had early experiences that shaped who I am today. These formative years played a big role in defining my identity and the path I’m on now.

Educational Background

I started my educational journey at Kuliagorh Satishghosh High School and finished my Class 10 there.

Later, I moved on to Naihati Mahendra High School, where I completed my Higher Secondary Education in 2009.

I then decided to explore the field of Information Technology (IT) by pursuing B.TECH at Kalyani University.

Throughout my academic journey, I gained valuable skills and knowledge that laid the foundation for my professional career. Education has played a crucial role in my life, providing me with the tools to discover various possibilities and make meaningful contributions to the world.

Professional Journey

Career path and experiences

Once I finished my B.TECH, I set my sights on government jobs, particularly exams like SSC and WBCS. The journey began with intense preparation, and I threw myself into the competitive world of exams. I took the WBCS preliminary exams three times, and on one occasion, I even made it to the WBCS Mains.

Amidst the preparations, I found myself deeply involved in various study groups, taking on the role of a moderator. These were vibrant communities on Facebook where students like me shared knowledge and supported each other. I didn’t just stop at being a participant; I actively contributed by posting notes, multiple-choice questions (MCQs), and helpful infographics. It was my way of giving back to the study groups that had become a valuable part of my learning journey.

As time went on, I realized the wealth of personal notes I had created could benefit a wider audience. In 2021, I took a leap and started this blog. This platform became my space to share all the insights and notes that had proven useful in those Facebook groups. The blog aimed to be a resource for fellow aspirants, providing them with the tools and information needed to navigate the challenging path of government job exams.

In essence, my journey has been one of continuous learning, collaboration, and a desire to share knowledge. From competitive exam preparations to actively participating in online study groups, and finally, starting a blog, each step has been a part of my effort to contribute to the learning community and help others on a similar path.

Relevant achievements or milestones

As I delved into the intense preparation for the WBCS exams, something unexpected happened – I lost interest in the exam itself. It turned out that my true passion lay in creating notes and infographics for competitive exams. This shift in focus marked a significant milestone in my journey.

Driven by this newfound passion, I poured my energy into crafting beautiful and helpful notes and infographics. To my surprise and delight, people appreciated and admired my work. Encouraged by their positive response, I felt inspired to take the next step and share my creations on a larger platform.

Becoming a moderator and admin for various blogs became another feather in my cap. Two blogs, in particular, held special significance in my journey – “UDAAN” and “WBCS (Exe) & PSC-WB.” These platforms allowed me to connect with a broader audience, share insights, and contribute to the collective learning experience of aspirants. The ‘UDAAN’ group no longer exists. 😣😣

In addition to these blogs, I ventured into the world of General Science on my personal Facebook page named Pediascience. This page became a hub for discussions and information sharing, specifically focusing on General Science topics. It was a way for me to diversify my contributions and engage with a wider audience interested in the fascinating world of science.

Unfortunately, this general science blog also no longer exists. 😣😣

So, my journey took an unexpected turn from exam preparation to becoming a content creator and moderator for significant blogs. The appreciation I received fueled my decision to start a blog of my own, marking a pivotal moment in my pursuit of sharing knowledge and helping others in their competitive exam journey.

The Creative Process

The inspiration behind starting the blog

I started my blog because I love making interesting notes and cool infographics. People around me liked them and suggested I share them on a bigger platform. When I got tired of studying for government exams, I decided to focus on creating updated study notes. While searching online, I noticed a lot of study materials were outdated, so I thought of starting a blog to share current and helpful notes.

Writing style and preferences

I like to keep things simple in my writing. I use bullet points to make it easy to read and include only the important stuff. I also add creative elements like tables, key points, and cool maps and charts to make learning more fun.

Favorite topics and themes

My blog covers topics I enjoy, like what’s happening in the world right now, general science (like Physics, Chemistry, and Biology), Geography, and Computer General Knowledge. I organize current affairs notes by categories to help readers stay updated. I want my blog to be a fun and helpful place for anyone interested in learning new things.

Expertise and Passion

Areas of expertise

I’m a versatile content writer and blogger with expertise in a wide range of subjects. I love bringing people’s stories to life through biographies and creating engaging narratives that inspire and captivate readers. I also specialize in making educational content for competitive exams.

Using my research skills, I break down complex concepts to make learning easy and effective. I stay updated on the latest current affairs and produce timely articles that help readers understand the ever-changing world around them. Whether it’s crafting a compelling biography, simplifying educational materials, or covering the latest news, I’m dedicated to delivering high-quality content with precision and creativity.

Passion for the subject matter

I love diving into various topics and sharing my insights in a way that’s easy to grasp. My passion lies in writing about current affairs, breaking them down into simple, digestible pieces. I enjoy creating eye-catching infographics and charts to make information visually engaging.

When it comes to Indian Geography and General Science, I specialize in creating notes that are not only informative but also easy to understand.

Additionally, researching and uncovering the biographies and net worth of notable individuals is another area where I thrive.

I make it a point to stay updated with the latest information, ensuring that my content is always fresh and relevant. This passion fuels my commitment to providing readers with accessible and interesting content across various categories.

Behind the Scenes

Daily routine and habits

In my role as a blogger, my daily routine kicks off at 10 A.M., checking emails and messages to stay connected with my audience. From 10 A.M. to 1 P.M., I dive into research and brainstorming, gathering information for my upcoming blog posts.

Writing sessions follow from 1 P.M. to 6 P.M., where I transform my thoughts into engaging content. After a break to avoid burnout, I resume work from 6 P.M. to 9 P.M., focusing on editing and proofreading before publishing.

My schedule is flexible; if urgent family matters arise, I prioritize them. From 10:30 P.M. to 2 A.M., I may work on additional tasks or handle any pressing issues. This dynamic routine helps me balance creativity, engagement, and family commitments while delivering consistent and valuable content to my readers.

Fun facts or hobbies

I’ve got some interesting hobbies that keep life exciting! First off, there’s my rooftop gardening adventure where I grow all sorts of herbs and veggies – it’s like having a secret garden on top of my house! I’m a nature lover, so it’s the perfect hobby for me.

But that’s not all; I’m also a big fan of non-veg delights, especially biryani and homemade fast foods. The aromatic flavors of biryani and the joy of creating my own fast-food feasts at home make my taste buds dance.

To top it off, I share a bit of laughter with the world by posting funny memes on social media. It’s a quirky mix of green thumbs, foodie cravings, and online humor that adds a dash of excitement to my everyday routine!
