My self-summary
I'm worldly, somewhat wordy, always curious. I dig ethnic food, language, that feeling right after you leave security and are heading to the airport gate full of anticipation and respite , concerts, getting completely immersed into music. Never bored, always somewhat sort of whimsical, perpetually learning and reflecting and thinking. I'm my favorite company in the least arrogant sense possible.

That about covers it. Soccer is amazing too. And puns. I like puns. I'll make this excessively clear throughout my profile.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from college in DC and now I work for a family business (my family's) in pharmaceuticals. It's....interesting. Didn't think I'd be in business as I've always been, and continue to be, pretty bookish, but it's suiting me very well and I find that as long as the heedless pursuit of profit doesn't consume everything else I love about myself, it seems to work.

But I don't see myself doing one thing for the rest of my life. I have ideas and hopefully momentum towards unifying my passions and my profession that I'm working on.

But experiences>material goods. There is a value- a premium- I put on a life spent having amazing conversations, attending concerts and museums and so on an so forth.

French is what I'm learning right now and after a stint in Paris and hopefully many more this will be a lifetime pursuit. I want to begin studying a Eastern Asian language soon too.

exercising, reading, reflecting, conversing, traveling.

trying to get my head around French and Hindi at the same time. finding that to be a bit of an ordeal.

consuming art, music, a fair deal of pollution.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Indian hazelnut eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies- The ROOM, Lost In Translation, Harold and Kumar (this is my go to homesickness movie), Wes Anderson, Woody Allen, Zindagi Na Milegi Doobare, Dil Chatha Hai.

I only really watch/care about one sport and that's soccer. My summer is booked to watch the World Cup. I'm also a Tottenham fan.

CURRENTLY READING: Steven Pinker's "The Language Instinct" and it's awesome. On a sort of linguistics roll right now.

Amartya Sen, Steven Pinker, Nassim Talib, Jared Diamond, Richard Dawkins, Focault, John McWhorter, Chomsky,

As far as fiction writers go- Gary Shteyngart, Ralph Ellison, Douglas Adams, Jack Kerouac. Still working my way up to the Russians.

Music: Future Garage (Sbtrkt? I guess?), Minus the Bear Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Foals, Friendly Fires, Britpop (Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club, Editors, Bloc Party, Foals), Paradis, Jai Paul (so promising), Grizzly Bear, Neon Indian, LCD Soundsystem, Toro y Moi, Sasha, Minus the Bear, DIIV, soo much more.

Shows: Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Louie

Food: Mexican, Ethiopian, Italian, Sri lankan, Punjabi, South Indian, Vietnamese, Thai....I can just go ahead and list about every nation's comfort food I can possibly come up with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cool band names. My favorites at the moment: Table for Two, Opiated Masses and Post-Graduate Purgatory.

Also language- speech acqusition and the sheer brilliance of speech, and how as a child of immigrants I code switch without rhyme or reason.

Consciousness in general fascinates me as do questions regarding it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I live at home. It's not something I'm ashamed of but it is something I should be clear about. I'm doing so because I want to save money, travel and do things I couldn't if I had to pay a rent. With that being said, I hope to move out in a year or two because I do prize independence.
You should message me if
You love soccer. But hate Arsenal.

If you love The Room or can laugh at terrible movies.

I'm passionate, entertaining and considerate. I'm generally a good time, so much so that I enjoy hanging out with myself a lot too. Come hang out with us! I also have multiple personality disorder. Just kidding.
The two of us
