Saagar - pronounced the same way as the last part of "Candy Crush Saga" - is a strong believer in the ideology that any data that does not lead to action, is like buying the most expensive sports car and letting it sleep in your garage, because you don’t know how to drive it.
Saagar likes to quantify everything both at work and OUTSIDE work - to the point where even WhatsApp chat histories are text mined and sentiments analysed across years between him and his wife. The paintings that hang at their new house include word clouds and sentiment maps of yearly analyses of their chat histories on various platforms which interestingly throw different themes each year. If you want an example, Google “Love,Life and R on Wired magazine” and you’ll see a published article with those examples.
Interesting fact - is that a new book on Mathematics in real life, published by a friend details this story as the main part of a chapter on using math in real world situations.
At every place he has worked, working and will work - he likes to go back to the fundamentals, asking people to ask more questions of data and being a tough task master on getting actionable outcomes from data, on all possible occasions.
