I find it very hard to describe myself. I guess you could call me a traveller. Not just in the literal sense of someone wanting to pack their bags and travel to other locations but also metaphorically. I like new beginnings, love being a student and learning new things around me. I love reading- I definitely believe that the pen is mightier than the sword, that ideas can change the world where weapons cannot. I lose myself in good music – my taste is eclectic but I have a soft corner for classical crossover. I love coldplay.
I am always ready to travel though I like visiting a new place, coming back, reflecting on it and then setting out to a new place. I am not your regular backpacker though if somebody sponsored a round the world backpacking trip for me for a few months I would definitely not say no.
My blog is a kinda sorta expression of my need to write and express myself. But expression need not always only be in words. I try to capture in my photographs what I cannot capture in words. Photography was one of the main things that revived this blog when it almost died just about a year after I started it. It may have been ancient history.
Not that I don’t like ancient history. I love Ancient Rome. I am a big fan of Republican Rome- those people were so cool. Their lives while being so different from our own were also the same on so many different levels and that fascinates me.
What also fascinates me are languages- I speak a few and would love to speak more. In my spare time when I am not doing anything else I am flipping through my kanji flashcards. Japanese is my next project. Someday I would like to read Murakami in Japanese. I am about 20 years away from that target.
I also hold a full-time day job that has almost nothing to do with anything that I do online. I like that I can be different people at once. Keeps life interesting that.
I’m originally from Chennai, India but currently live and work in Dubai, UAE.
