  • Palash has loved computers since he was a child, with over twenty PCs personally assembled for his friends and family so far.
  • Starting out with his first Android phone in 2012, Palash picked up a deep understanding of Android phones by playing around with custom ROMs, and switching phones as often as he could.
  • Ever since he used his friend's iPod Touch in 2011, Palash has been obsessed with Apple's approach to technology, keeping a track of all of the company's offerings.


Palash started writing in 2013 for a local Android blog in Goa, India. After venturing into entertainment reporting, he freelanced for a bunch of technology websites, including Windows Central, before joining Android Authority full-time to cover computing. Palash returned to freelancing a year and a half later, and now freelances for some top websites, like XDA Developers, iMore, and How-to-Geek, while serving as the Editor-in-Chief of Wiki of Thrones — one of the biggest "Game of Thrones" fansites in the world.


Palash studied information technology engineering before dropping out to pursue a full-time career in writing. He then obtained a bachelor's degree in English Literature, giving him unique insights into technology reporting and writing.
