I am a writer of mushy poems and tacky stories, a singer of old songs that are out of fashion and someone who is obsessed with history. I like to read books but I prefer to watch movies. I have recently started reviewing the books I read and movies that I watch (too late I guess, but better late than never). For 2014, I am going to read and review 130 books as part of the 130 Challenge.
I wasn’t really actively blogging for a long period of time and have started again thanks to encouragement from my friends. You can find their blogs on the right side pane under ‘Give these a dekko’.
I also like to draw and I will be putting up my sketches and drawings up on my blog for your perusal, soon (because I am an insufferable narcissist who likes to be appreciated). I think I draw okayish . Please don’t judge me for using that word. Wait, you already did. Great.
Besides all that, I love to cook and take extreme delight in watching people eat (and appreciate) the food that I prepare. Anyone who reads my blog is welcome to come over for lunch/dinner or a snack. I am currently in Kochi, Kerala so ping me for more details if you really want to visit.
I like music and I keep trying different genres, so suggestions are most welcome. I don’t really have a favorite band (because it is so hard to choose) but I like most songs by Pink Floyd, Snow Patrol, Coldplay, The Beatles, Pearl Jam, Audioslave, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson and Queen (of course). The latest band to join this venerable group is Vampire Weekend. My favorite song from last year (2013) is ‘Ya Hey’ by Vampire Weekend.
If you read my blog and find that you have something to say (or not), please, for the love of dog, leave a comment. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love feedback!

I first wrote this bio on 2nd January, 2014. My earlier bio (which I think is not too great and too philosophical) can be found here (for posterity).
