He is fascinated by the Great Renaissance and is an avid chai drinker and his favourite writers include Arundhati Roy, Pablo Neruda and the random quirky paragraph ‘authors’ of reader’s digest.
The book is described in the blurb as-“What if thoughts and memories were like colored photographs;/and the narration of each one of them, the negative reels?/ And what if I tell you that once you read all of what is inside, you would possess the map to my insignificant mind?/ It is black and white cinema but with moving pages.”
