My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a professor (English) at a university in Toronto. I never planned to be professor, but somehow it happened. I was supposed to take care of our family business in New Delhi, but I got spoiled by Dostoevysky, Shakespeare and Co. and ended up doing a Masters and an M.Phil (English) both from Delhi University. I chose to come to Queen’s for my PhD, and published a book on European travel narratives, which ended up being loads of work, but something I really indulged in, since there was no other option in Kingston! May be I should not be mentioning this here, but thanks to the loneliness in Kingston, I came up with the idea to launch LIMCA (Lonely Indian Men Cricket Association) to keep myself and my fellow friends, both Indians and Canadians, busy with the art of cricket. The LIMCA league was launched in 2001 with the help of 6 Indian PhD students, and now it is proudly the biggest Cricket League in North America with 6 different nations fighting annually for the coveted LIMCA trophy in Kingston. (I LOVE RUNNING, GOING TO THE GYM, BUT I DON’T SIT IN FRONT OF THE TV WATCHING CRICKET OR HOCKEY ALL DAY).

The loneliness ended when I moved to Toronto in 2005 for my current job, and it’s been great fun working here, but it came at the cost of resigning from the position of LIMCA’s president. Although I do get invited to Kingston every year to do the honours at LIMCA’s annual celebrations when I hand over the trophy to a group of the most deserving lonely cricketers in North America. You are most welcome to be my partner at the annual ceremony, and like a true hero from every cheap Bollywood film I will make sure that no villainous cricketers hit on you. (This is all obviously a joke: LIMCA is a small group of PhD students at Queen's who are trying to figure out what to do with their lives).

Toronto reminds me of Delhi a lot, not because of the growing number of corrupt fellow Indians taking over the city, but because, Toronto, like Delhi, is full of life. I was fortunate to grow up in Delhi, since the university was mostly on strike, and therefore I was always at a film festival or at a music concert. The current university where I teach does not go on strike, but I do end up indulging in loads of theatre, music concerts, talks etc., and I get paid for it, since it is all a part of my job! I also work as a freelance journalist writing on cinema, theatre and sports (used to be a long distance runner and love going for a jog). I have also done workshops on Shakespearean films and acting.

I am not looking for a casual relationship. I need someone who will effortlessly drink a few litres of coffee with me, and happily pretend to smile and look interested when I make nonsensical connections between Shakespeare and hmmm....????.

(And the username 'Mystical Orient' is also a joke - There is nothing mystical about an Indian).

Thanks for reading.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
This section can be endless: We can talk about the long list of books/writers both fiction and non-fiction when we meet. I am a huge film buff. I have done courses on world cinema from FTII (Film and Television Institute of India). I love going to the TIFF, but I am also a fan of mainstream cinema, music, and I watch TV whenever I get a chance.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My nephews (Understatement!!!)- but they are NOT things.
My Indian-English accent.
Pretending to be smart (remember it’s my job).
I live peacefully. So, I persecute anyone who does not respect me.
Going on fake hunger strikes (but getting the job done).
Breaking rules … (this obviously comes from Hindu scriptures).

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
