Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As much as I love reading what people have to say in their
profiles, I find myself at the crossroads when it's time to fill my
So that's why I'm going to borrow something (profile desc. to be
precise) from my Orkut/MySpace days!
"well i am an easy going guy, an introvert really.
I like straightforward and humble people, am like that as
Believe in keeping things simple, there are already way too many
complexities in life... wat say?
Like to read, listening to music, watch sports on telly, have a
game of cricket with friends, love computer and console gaming and
am an occasional poet.
That pretty much sums me up... eh wait... no, yep thats it
"I am big, introverted, and laidback."
The above three were the ones I chose when this site, in its older
avatar, asked me to choose 3 words to describe myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being unfair to it at the moment!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...listening, reading people and their discomforts, getting lost in
thoughts, analyzing things around me, wondering how many layers
people have to them, trying to understand other viewpoints, having
intense conversations, being diplomatic and blunt in equal measure
(something that shocks most people), exchanging ideas, writing...
and solitude !
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My bulk, my toothy smile (if I flash it), and my quiet demeanor!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I started off as a reader with a lot of promise but have only
around 10 or so books to show for it. That's the problem when you
don't love madly any one particular thing.
I'm listing the books I've read here just to goad me into reading
1) Oliver Twist (Such a beautiful story)
2) Black Beauty (Brought a tear to the eye multiple times)
3) Sherlock Holmes series (Can't have enough of the
4) The Alchemist (picked up purely because of the hype and no, it
didn't live up to it)
5) The Princess (all I remember is that it was a personal account
of a Saudi girl during her growing up years)
6) Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code (masala
7) World's Biggest Brand Failures (Management student or not, this
is an excellent read)
8) Secession-ism In India (mega-yawn affair)
9) Orange is the New Black (picked this up after watching the 1st
season of the TV series and it was quite enjoyable)
10) The Godfather (finally read this one and boy oh boy!!)
11) The God of Small Things (beautifully written yet
I know that's only 8 but I bet I've read more. Will add them here
as and when I remember. Have been guilty of starting too many books
before leaving them midway. Oh I so wish I had read enough to be
unable to mention them in this space!
As for movies, I'm pretty much up for anything and have a better
record with them compared to books. There are way too many
favorites to list but for the sheer thrill factor it carried when I
watched it first, I have to say it's "Terminator 2: The Judgement
Haven't been so enamored by TV shows since the days of some
fantastic ones on 90s Indian telly. English TV networks have some
fine aces up their sleeves, which has meant that TV shows take
precedence over movies now (the shorter length helps greatly). So
much so, that I'm noting down all TV series with rave reviews that
I come across and plan to watch (the count breached the 30 mark
some time ago).
Anyway, here are some favorites.
Breaking Bad, Homeland (S01 only), Spartacus, Rome, F.R.I.E.N.D.S.,
Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The
X-Files, House M.D., Sherlock, Whose Line Is It Anyways and most
Coming to music, like some from a wide variety genres except
hard/heavy/death metal rock. Blame it on my lack of understanding
or enthusiasm for the same, but I do want to know more about that
genre in the hope that may be I'll see/hear/experience what I was
oblivious to before.
Being brought up in a multilingual home has meant music tastes span
across three languages and even more decades!
Although I'm a foodie, I haven't experimented much when it comes to
the different cuisines out there! So yeah, I'm a rank novice when
it comes to that!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My father would always say that nothing is indispensable. That
really kinda stuck in my mind and I can't help thinking about it
when a question like this pops up.
I do love to have around my computer, phone, scooter, the web and
the likes, but can I live without them? It'd be tough but I'll
probably get through.
"Life always finds a way" - Don't know to whom it originally
belongs but I first heard Jeff Goldblum say that in his inimitable
style in Jurassic Park.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of things!
I am the wandering kind....
P.S. - There is nothing good about this if you intend to get some
work done in a short span of time!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing my typical daily stuff.
As mundane as it sounds, its true!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be extremely private at times, which sends out the wrong
signals to people around me (barring my family of course)!
You should message me if
