One who is vacillating between philosophy, fiction and non-fiction, not able to control the urge to read everything and anything that, he comes across over the vast ocean of the Internet.
Very straight forward and smart working engineer, who has interesting work on helping people to know what they want and then make them buy his companies products. A patient citizen on India, who doesn't complain or try to explain the style of Democracy at play.
My interest in reading was kindled by the Non-detail book, Scarlet Pimpernel in the school and so it continued through Twinkle, Batman comics and then tended towards Rudyard Kipling. Then came the engineering books, which were altogether a different genre ;);) which I need not tell verbosely here. Once engg ordeal was over, then came Deceiver and Spy master world of Fredrick Forsyth. Same time, Fictional Universe of PKD also closed in on me. In parallel Jack McDevitt as influencing me with his space voyages and impossible plot twists that to some extent opened my creative part of my brain. Sommerset Maugham, Steven.D.Levitt, E.L.James,Hugh Laurie, Hermann Hesse, Douglas.R.Hofstadter, Douglas Adams, Paulo Coelho were some who have been read but not completely misunderstood.
Yes, very much.
By asking Google for book clubs in Bangalore, and viola!!! BBC manifested, and so started my journey into the unknown.
A group of very passionate, friendly and light hearted people. My first meetup was so informational, and gave me new avenues to look out to.
