Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Technology is my occupation. Literature, my preoccupation. Give me
a good narrative any day of the week, I don't care if you wrap it
up in a book, movie, TV show, video game, or webcomic.
I'm an introvert but not shy. I take my time when making friends
and like to keep the good ones around.
I have been influenced by too many value systems and lifestyles
(East/West, Gay/Hetero-normative, Mainstream/Geek etc) to consider
any one of them definitive of a "normal life". I think life is what
you make of it and these times are particularly exciting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an Engineering graduate by day and a gamer and reader by
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Not avoiding the comments sections of webpages.
- Hosting boardgames events at my place.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A list of my favorite books would be too long for this page. I grew
up on Enid Blyton and Agatha Christie. I devoured Tolkien, Rowling
and C. S. Lewis during my early teens. In my mid to late teens, I
found "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" and used its
sequel "Lila" to frame my intellectual thinking. I admire Guy
Gavriel Kay, especially for "Ysabel", and Miriam Toews for "A
Complicated Kindness". I have read a few classics too, the most
memorable of which are "The Magic Mountain", "Pride and Prejudice"
and "Vanity Fair: A Novel without a Hero".
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Black (Bollywood movie)
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Currently hooked on "Episodes".
Age of Wonders
We didn't play test this at all
Last Night on Earth
Music: My tastes are quite pliable in this department.
Food: Italian, Indian and Thai cuisines rank at the top. Others
depend on the restaurant.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Time set aside for introspection.
- Meaningful conversation.
- Playing board-games with friends.
- Meaningful shows that make me think [like "Being Erica" and
"Avatar: The Last Airbender"].
- Good food.
- Good books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I love to "concoct elaborate fantasy scenarios" in which I am the
lead character :D
I sometimes struggle with and sometimes come to terms with the
related ideas of Identity (what qualifies as "I"?) and Transience
(is any thing permanent?). And I wouldn't be the first person to
day dream about a hopeless romance either.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner and a movie (or two) with friends.
Video gaming with friends or by myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I think it is okay to talk to a math problem IF there is no
one else around AND it helps you solve it.
