By birth -An eternal optimist ( a true Libran in that sense) and a hopeless romantic (in so far as it fits the definition of the word as being whimsical, imaginative and creative, though not too sure about the last one)


By nature - an introvert who talks too much (not an oxymoron, recent studies find this very plausible and quite likely)

By profession - an accountant, who believes that numbers are absolute and people are manipulative. So all the creativity I will not and should not show in numbers seeps into writing.

By necessity - a reader, I read as I need to breathe. I read a lot; fiction, articles, billboards and posters while driving, product labels when shopping and even bags made out of old newspapers

By habit - a collector of hobbies - somehow cannot stay interested for long in any one of them

By passion - a lisztomaniac - music, always around me and in my head too

By indulgence - coffee, chocolates and cakes - my choice of poison

By choice - a writer- which is a recent phenomenon. I have always been writing stories in my head though earlier, I would rarely put them down on paper. But once I started, I seem to have turned into a scripturient being. I also write for I once felt that I could create worlds that I can control, unfortunately I have learnt that much like life and reality, it is not so, after some time, the characters take over and in some cases also determine the course of the story. (Believe me, it is true, one story of mine disappeared because the characters ran amok with it. I do not think I will ever be able to write it out.)

By now it is apparent that I can ramble while writing too....
