It's kinda weird when you have to write about yourself so... Let's do this? I write, photograph & make music. I do not approve monotony while alternative education, sarcasm & backpacking tops my list and I totally dig garage-culture! I was a former journalist at The Times of India and a freelancer for Rolling Stone magazine. You can go ahead and check out my work: That's it, I guess?
