Hi! My name is Nikhil.

A solution enthusiast who loves creating complete solutions. I have a keen interest on security, making information accessible to all and data (S.I.D). My professional experience spans 6+ years. I use JavaScript, JQuery, PHP, SQL, HTML or CSS for programming. I am also a beginner in Python and Bash and a big nerd on Unix systems and Open Source Software ecosystem. Ricing and tinkering stuff is my way of trying out new things.

Currently I work as a full stack developer at HMI Tech handling front-end, back-end and databases. Previously, I was taking care of security and IT support at Mapbox for 7 different time zones. Before moving to Security and IT at Mapbox, I fell in love with maps and numbers there. I was a geospatial data analyst at Mapbox leading the end user’s feedback pipeline, doing data analysis and maps. This involved data analysis while working with the engineering teams, sales, business and marketing team. My professional career started at Tech Mahindra as a manual tester of network equipments (Think big Huawei and Cisco network equipments which fills a whole room). My interests include information security, web development, data analysis, data visualisation, unix systems and open source software to name a few. I like to link my work directly with my interest but are not afraid of jumping into new stuff. If you are interested, contact me through the below email or drop a DM in twitter.

What’s does the name “unsung novelty” mean?

We humans are all unique. People with a lot of unique characteristics, perspectives, skills or thoughts. But we also have a lot in common. Common things helps us humans work together. While our unique characteristics, perspectives, skills and thoughts keeps us stand out. The name “unsung novelty” comes from the thought of sharing my own unique characteristics, perspectives, skills and thoughts with the people who I have a lot of things in common.

Cool folks with website but inactive/no blog

About this website


Information about license of the contents or anything related to license can be found at license page.


Name of the theme is “Brahma”. It was created by me specifically for this website. But my friend ArkArjun started using it as well thereby becoming my only “stakeholder”.

While my theme is stable for blogging, there are a few features I think are missing. This is why I don’t think it is good enough for a “v1.0” version bump. See the text in the footer to know the current version of the theme. Do DM me at @unsungNovelty if you have any feedback.


This website uses Hugo bundled with Brahma Theme created by me. Netlify is behind the scenes.


Privacy shouldn’t be a premium feature. So I made sure I have only used a basic site analytics which is Open Source and privacy friendly called Goat counter. It is minimal and privacy friendly enough to be GDPR friendly without the need for a GDPR consent notice to be shown to the user as far as I understand. The only reason for analytics to be present in this website is to make sure I am not sharing into the void. Not to get the accurate number of folks visiting the website.

While I am not digging deeply into GDPR anytime soon since this is a small personal website, if you think I am violating GDPR somehow, do write to me at unsungnovelty at pm dot me. Do expect a delay in response. But I will try to find a solution for your query.
