One of the problems with growing up is that it gets rather difficult to introduce yourself – the people you know already know you, and introducing yourself to new acquaintances is too much work. Having said that, I’ll still give this a try. I like writing code (I mostly work on compilers), drinking cheap chai (the one you get for less than five rupees in roadside stalls in India), listening to good music (The Doors, Joe Satriani, Indian Classical, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd; check out my last.fm page) and talking to interesting people (who work on interesting things). I don’t like junk food, people who don’t respect my time and bad music. I’m not a movie buff, but I do enjoy watching a good movie or two from time to time. I try to keep a minimalistic, spartan, mostly anti-consumerist lifestyle.
