About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Figuring out...

ABOUT ME

I am a research student in sciences, but also interested in so many other things. I like reading about politics, history, literature, so many things. I am also a big fan of cinema. Apart from that, I also like hanging out with friends, talking to them.

I've been a traveler for a long time. Grew up in many towns and villages and cities, in different states and countries, with different languages and dialects spoken around.

I love walking, and has been into running, biking and hiking these days...

PHILOSOPHY

"A life that partakes
even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature,
and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of [yourself and ]
others cannot be called "meaningless" except if the person living it is
also an existentialist and elects to call it so."
