CSC 200 Final Webpage

My Name is Nishil Patel and I am currently a student at North Carolina State University majoring in Aerospace Engineering. Some of my hobbies are playing sports like football and cricket, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music and hanging out with friends. Apart from sports, a couple things that I have most passion for are aviation, and playing an Indian percussion instrument known as a "dhol".

The dhol is a two-sided percussion instrument. One side is made up of a thick goat skin and is used to play the bass side. A curved wooden cane of about a 1cm diameter is used to hit this side, it is known as the dugga. The treble side skin is made up of artificial synthetic fiber, it produces a high pitched noise when hit with a thin stick usually made from bamboo known as the tilli.

Below is a picture of the instrument along with its playing sticks:
