My self-summary
Romantic literature professor looking for love. I'll love you for all of your faults ... for each one of them. By faults, I do not imply that I am looking for a casual relationship.

Actually, I am stealing from Shakespeare's play Much Ado About Nothing. Benedick mocks his beloved Beatrice by asking her: for which of his “BAD PARTS” did she fall in love with him? But Beatrice, instead of idolizing him by saying that he is perfect and that there is nothing bad about him, replies that she loves him for all of his “bad parts put together”. She implies that she loves him despite his bad qualities/faults, or rather for all of his bad parts. She not only mocks his lover for his bad parts, but takes it one step further by asking him: “but for which of my GOOD parts did you first SUFFER love for me?

To end my lecture, both Benedick and Beatrice do not idolize love since they recognise that they are not perfect. They are mundane, they are Good and Bad in several ways, but they love by accepting each other's flaws. In fact, they love each other for each other's flaws.

Sorry, I went off an tangent - I am leading a well-settled life in Toronto. I live downtown. I love reading, running (I used to be a full-time athlete), traveling, and making masala chai for my beloved every morning (as I happily sip my coffee!).
What I’m doing with my life
I think I have the best job in the world. I get paid to recite poetry, teach acting, theatre and films! But I don't do it for the money. I am in love with poetry, with films, with acting....
I’m really good at
Going off tangents.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to mention here .... Would love to talk to you if you are interested. I love reading everything from Greek Epics to contemporary global literatures. I am a Literature prof. who is also a big film buff. I watch loads of films and I am currently an Editor of an Encyclopedia on World cinema. I used to watch lots of TV, but recently I have been more in love with cinema. But I am by no means an "elitist" - I enjoy all kinds of art. I can sing every Beatles song, every song from My Fair Lady, everything from the 80s (so what if I am a bad singer). I also love classical music .... I love all kinds of music.
Six things I could never do without
My nephews (they are obviously not "things")
Arts/Films/ Theatre
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no such thing as 'typical' Friday night for me. I am lucky to have a fun-flexible job!
You should message me if
Feel free to message me! And I am not looking for a well-crafted opening message (no expectations to quote Shakespeare), but please do read my profile before writing to me. I will be happy to talk to you in more detail, and send you more pictures.
The two of us
