He has written on travel, science, technology and business for a wildly disparate range of publications – from Wired to the Financial Times.
Other than writing, his main interests include history, science, astronomy, computing, and evolutionary biology.
He has had a lifelong obsession with George Orwell, who has provided constant succour over the years and shaped much of his political outlook. Graham Greene is another favourite author and he was very impressed with Pico Iyer’s memorable and haunting book, The Man Within My Head.
When not reading, he has a Scorsese-like compulsion for cinema, especially films from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s and film noir from the same period
Travel is another passion and his favourite cities include Prague, Muscat and Delhi. Despite the many rigours, he has been constantly drawn to return to India.
Mostly, he just likes going for long walks and is a flâneur of note.
“A story has no beginning or end; arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.”
from Graham Greene, The End of the Affair (1951)
