My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an engineer who works in New York and lives in Jersey City. I was born in India, and did my undergrad there, and I moved to Boston in 2001 for my MS and PhD, where I also became a Red Sox & Patriots fan. I graduated and moved to New York in Dec 2006. I love New York, enjoy traveling to Boston for pleasure, and to other cities (mostly work related). Also, a couple of years ago, two cats adopted me as their human. I generally get along with people who are curious, intellectual, tolerant, logical, analytical and scientific. I am a thinker, a bit of an introvert, a wall flower in most groups, and not alpha at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy the good things - food, wine , music , art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mathematics. Mechanics. Computers. The work related stuff. Remembering Random Stuff. Making witty remarks. Sarcasm ( though I've learned shut it up when people can get hurt ). Remembering music I've liked. Obscure Bob Dylan references. Finding pennies on the street.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the fact that I'm Indian and I'm quiet. Also the fact that I come across as a serious person. That's not the case really, I'm just a bit slow to warm up, and I can come up with some mean zingers from time to time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
0) Friends!
1) Music
2) Books
3) Internet (I can do without it at home, but I need it somewhere);
4) A paycheck
5) Intellectual stimulation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I am perennially bored.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at the IFC/Angelika/Film Forum or finishing up laundry and grocery shopping. Streaming movies from Netflix. Recovering from the work-week and looking forward to not being sleep deprived.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Once or twice they let me play a thousand kisses deep", -Leonard Cohen.

I lost weight 47 pounds (218-171) but then gained a lot of it back, which is my current state (202).
