My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am pretty easy going person who appreciates kindness, simple people, love sense of humor, quirkiness, and intelligence. This article, from another technologist, summarizes evolution of my thought process in recent years - http://chronicle.com/article/From-Technologist-to/128231/

I spend time reading philosophy, religion, art, drawing, and poetry reading. I developed appreciation of diverse world view by virtue of living in multiple cities - Delhi, Bombay, Pune, Bangalore, Atlanta, WhitePlains, Princeton, London at different stages in my life.

I admire and appreciate someone who is well read, ambitious, creative, has multiple perspectives, taken diverse paths and has constant yearning for learning in their life. Learning and taking up new challenges defines me, and also attracts me towards a person. I am big sucker for new ideas, and someone who can teach me something new.

I am willing and open to new experiences of creativity, thoughts and culture. I try to make honest attempts to be helpful, encouraging and kind to people around me. I consider myself self reflective, and constantly working towards becoming a better human being.

My interests are diverse, and evolve as I explore myself as a person such as - learning a new language, going for a theater class, drawing/sketching, going on a drive without fine prints, spending time at book shops and public libraries, museums, art shows, spending time reading/blogging at cafes, going for live music places, sometimes movies, enjoying a stroll in neighborhood parks and such.

I spend time connecting with myself. I play games :) - Ping pong, badminton, field hockey and soccer. Sometimes, I bike to work. I enjoy running and biking around GGP and Ocean Beach. Most recently, I enjoyed discovering a sushi place. I am very particular about my beer.

I switch between carefree and intense. I am romantic and playful at heart, but it takes times for me to be comfortable with any person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying not to stuck up feathers up my butt and look like a chicken :).

Working with a tech startup in SF. I love my job, the folks I work with, and everything about the job.

I like to create and contribute towards meaningful innovation inside and outside of work. I have learnt (never too late!) that my work is just a part of my life, and hence I work towards being a better human being.

I run a poetry reading meet up group across SF/South Bay. Come join us - http://www.meetup.com/Hindi-Urdu-Sufi-Poetry-and-Literature-Reading-in-SF/ If you are someone who likes live firehose, my opinionated self is found here - https://twitter.com/imaxxs

I have spent time learning Djembe (African Drums). One of the interesting things about playing drums is that it builds a structure of rhythm, and then you go in and out of the structure while maintaining rhythm and tempo. I think this applies to even relationships. The best times of a relationship is when you are able to slowly build the tempo, rhythm and then be able to hold that for very long periods of time :). I also learn and make charcoal portraits drawings.

I took summer lessons to learn basic Arabic, although I am not at all good at it. I have read multiple books on different religions including Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a world view, aware and appreciative of different cultures and religions. You like reading books. You are intellectually curious. You think philosophy is not that boring, or at least you can appreciate it sometimes. You like to have fun and interesting conversations, and can enjoy sarcasm with a laugh. You like to develop deeper understanding about things in life, and explore spiritual/soulful connection along with connecting at many other levels in life.

You are someone who is willing to take risks and are not afraid of failing, feel confident that we can find a way of landing and/or flying off smoothly, if we ever have to jump off the cliff.

Above all, you are open, unpretentious, genuine, not flaky, smart, ambitious, happy with your life, willing to meet in person rather than messages, and see if we have a connection.
