What could I say about myself that would not make me sound ?holier than thou??
(I'm sometimes inclined to overdo the autobiography part...lol)
You'll find me campy, cheesy, sometimes dry and sarcastic, clever, quick witted, friendly, easy-going and laid-back. Like it?
If you do, here's more.
I've a few simple pleasures - like the wind rushing through my hair on a breezy evening; the rush of adrenalin when I'm riding my bikes (I have 2); driving through the mountain passes in my car early in the morning when its all misty and beautiful; the rain ripping through my shirt and tattooing my skin on a really rip-roaring stormy afternoon, chai, mirchi-paos, vada-paos et al on some dull drizzly day; singing tuneless songs to myself in the hope of suddenly stumbling upon that one-in-a million tune; writing poetry in a hammock in someplace no one knows; rolling in the grass with my dogs that think I'm the god of this universe. What could feel better ???
Cos I?m a simple guy.
A natural at life. Love reading everything I can lay my hands on, writing poetry, singing, composing lyrics and music, playing guitar, long drives, treks, hikes, anything that has to do with mountains and jungles, swimming, climbing, martial arts, biking, driving....really more than I can say without tiring myself...
Love unravelling stuff that is mysterious...have something of a knack for it. Interested in obscure and arcane stuff, so beware!!! Am compiling some pretty arcane information - it has to do with religion, magic, beliefs, occult practices, sorcery, history and more. It will form the basis for some books I intend to write as well as documentary films I one day hope to make.
Besides news, good movies, some good shows, a few great channels, the idiot box is really for idiots. I think what you watch on TV really separates the sheep from the goats.
The Godfather, Misery, Superman (all the parts), Batman, Spiderman, Dracula Movies (Nosferatu being a favourite), The Ghost and the Darkness, Seven years in Tibet, Martial arts movies, Sci-fi, Mystery movies, Art Movies.
The Bible, Kahlil Gibran, Dan Brown, Graham Greene, Jeffrey Archer, Robert Ludlum, James Hadley Chase, Wilbur Smith, Louis L'amour, Max Brand, Erle Stanley Gardner, Agatha Christie, Lewis Caroll, Enid Blyton (...how I love her), P.G.Wodehouse (the man who wrote his way into my heart), Mystic writings by obscure folk (ask me about this only if you're really interested in stuff like that) and too many more of their ilk..I could fill reams of pages with authors and books I love, but that would be so meaningless, wouldn't it? Besides, this is enough for most folk !
