Parodist, Satirist, Programmer, Artist – someone who likes to take a backseat and watch…that’s who I am.
I watch, exaggerate, twist stuff out-of-shape while keeping it recognizable, add a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper, and create an oddly different yet eerily identifiable version of reality. I call it Salt & Pepper Writing and Art.
I started this blog on the insistence of friends and family, who think that they shouldn’t be the only ones bearing the brunt of my relentless salty and peppery pursuits. I continue blogging in the hope that one day I’d have flushed all this spice out of my system and wifey and friends will finally have a regular Indian man for a hubby or a friend in his stead.
I like to find humor in situations and people, and this is why I enjoy caricaturing people. This of course, isn’t all that I do. I am also proficient in programming and take up programming assignments with equal fervor. I love Bollywood and Hollywood, I like Cricket, and I am reasonably OK with Indian Politics.
Nothing much to boast of. Muddled through 18 years of education. But as wifey says it, “Yahi sab karna tha to padhai-likhai kyon ki?” which roughly translates to “If you had to spend your life doing just this (presumably programming, writing, and painting,) why did you waste those years studying?”
Still searching for an answer to her question. Out of kindness to my Alma-mater(s) I refrain from mentioning their names here.
Chief calls…gotta go!
