My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Philosopher, feminist, liberal, openminded, openhearted, lover of the wild, and seeker of truth. A paradox. A scientist and a mystic. Type Five on the enneagram. I grew up in India, have now lived in the Bay for 13 years and I love it here. You people are awesome. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my work on domestic and international energy policy. I'm also passionate about continued evolution. Which, for me, means living an examined life, being more myself, manifesting my life's Work and supporting others in manifesting theirs.

Currently also wondering if you're actually out there, reading this, and whether the OKC robot actually works or is just another version of the cosmic joke. ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Things I'm passionate about and put my mind to. Looking for my Beloved in all the wrong places.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You tell me. I think different people focus on different aspects of my being, so it usually says more about them than me. On second thought, probably that I have long hair that looks much better than the pics I have up, or that I'm brown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: I'm omnivorous musically, but don't feel the need to keep track of the trends.

Food: Anything veggie that's well made.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could probably do without most things. I guess the wild outdoors, my friends, meditation, self reflection and meaningful work are what I value most in life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The meaning of life, and my role in it. The unsustainable path civilization is on and how to make the transition gentle. How lonely it might feel to wake up last in a world already awake, or the opposite. ;) Lemmings. Politics. Spirituality. Science. Psychology. Tibetan Buddhism. Sufism. Kashmir Shaivism. Tantra. How to alchemically transform Kool Aid into Lemming Aid.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, hanging out with friends, taking long walks, drinking wine with cheese at the local lounge, playing chess or a boardgame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
