Last movie seen in a theatre:
Encounters at the End of the World, at the Boston Independent Film Festival. Good in bits, but worth a watch overall.
What book are you reading?
My Name is Red. Yes, still.
Favourite board game:
Pictionary. Can't draw too well, but very good at guessing.
The New Yorker.
The smell of old books, and of wet earth (cliched, I admit). Also, citrus, curry leaves, coffee, freshly baking bread, caramelising sugar, ghee...
Never thought about it. Flowing water, I suppose. And the sound of spices spluttering in hot oil.
Worst feeling in the world:
What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
Fuck, what time is it?
Favourite fast food place:
American fast food is gross. In Madras, Gangotree. Also Anna Univ canteen for the badam milk, pav bhaji and chole bhature.

Who thinks that far ahead?!
Finish this statement, “If I had a lot of money I’d…”
Travel, eat fancy things like truffles. Buy expensive books.
Do you drive fast?
Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Storms - Cool or Scary?
Cool. Cyclones infinitely cooler than New England snowstorms.

Hate broccoli. Ugh.

Nice boy. And sharp, too.
What’s under your bed?
Under my bed are drawers containing bedsheets and pillowcases.
Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Yes, but an improved version- with a talent for physics and maths. Everything else, I don't really mind/can deal with. And better eyesight, while we are at it.

Neither. Hard hoiled/scrambled/omelettes.

Favourite ice cream flavour:
Blood orange sorbet. And ooh, watermelon.
