About Me

I like day-dreaming. And it usually involves sex. Or violence. And I never really stopped fantasizing about solving crime mysteries.

I like talking politics, love stories, people who make me laugh, people who make me think, people who are socially awkward – in fact, i like awkwardness in general; public radio, books. I don’t like mean-ness, loud cars with rims, pretension, angry people (wait, angry people are actually okay), close-minds, Dr.Pepper.

I am prone to delusions of grandeur.

I can be usually found eating something fried and cheesy and awash in ketchup.

You can ask me stuff here.


You can email me. I will probably not reply, but maybe i will. I will definitely reply if I was in love with you in a past life.

    I am writing to you from the REVA electric car company. I came across your site and found it very interesting and well visited. We are pleased to inform you that REVA has launched its new version ‘REVAi’. The REVAi is designed for city commuters across the globe, for an economical and pollution free driving experience. It is designed for low speed, congested, urban conditions. It is much more advanced in terms of safely, power and comfort.

    We will be glad if you can write a review about REVAi in your blog space. You can take this opportunity to create awareness about an alternative means to avoid pollution and to create a sustainable environment.

    Please feel free to contact me in case of any further queries that you may have, I will be glad to assist you on the same.

    Hi Alokdhawa, (cant make out which part is your first name …or is this entirey your first name?)

    …doesnt matter much, though. I found your poetry in Amitava Kumar’s essays, capticated by them and feeling a new surge within.
    Would like to introduce your poems inmy creative writing class …if you agree. Kindly do tell how to get to read more of your poems, i find it difficult to locate your poems on your blog.

    Do you know the cellar Door sonnet by Philip Dacey? Yes!
    I’ll be posting an interview with him in a few days on my blog.
    Check this out:

    Serenade by Phil Dacey

    In a survey, non-English speakers picked cellar-door
    as the most beautiful-sounding English word.
    Associated Press news release

    You are as beautiful as the word cellar-door
    on the tip of someone’s tongue, in someone’s ear.
    My tongue in your ear, my stellar dear,
    tells all, and more, but mostly je t’adore.

    I want to take you on the parlor floor–
    as sailors holler land ho when they steer
    in sight of hills or towers, vales that cheer
    their homesick hearts, I cry out cellar-door.

    Not salary or celery galore
    or cuspidor or salad says amour
    like cellar-door, best-seller word for sure,
    a thriller for the mouth for evermore.

    And your eyes! That blue! Mon dieu and zut alors!
    What else but (no soul’s windows) cellar-doors.

    Cellar Door will always be in reference to the great Donnie Darko (the movie) and his teacher who informed him that Cellar Door was considered the most beautiful two words in the English language:)

    whats up girl. write some more. The blog world hasn’t been the same since you stopped blogging – it became this humorless, black tie wearing, Camry driver on his way to work on a Monday after a long vacation.

    Neat and clean blog. Like it. 🙂 Will add to my blogroll and subscribe.
    Also don’t forget to visit my blog back. 🙂

    By the way, were you in a train’s compartment when taking this photo? (looks like that, you know)
