About Me

Many a time, we need a change in life. In mine, I want it constantly. There are certain things that I wish weren’t happening, but they are. Life dishes out so many strange things – it hits us when we least expect it. Love is one of them. Sometimes, we feel that we’re lonely in a crowd, and at others, we realize that one special person is all we need to become complete. We move forward without going ahead, and we rush ahead while standing perfectly still. We’re all cut from the same fabric. My mirror’s cracked. Welcome to my space.

I sometimes think that I’m a half-decent guy, who deserves the good things in life, and at others, I think that I’m this no-good sonofabitch! I waver in my decisions and am constantly in need of better things. I am not materialistic. I am inherently funny. I have a funny bone longer than my list of abuses I can hurl at someone who pisses me off. I am here to write what I feel is worthy of sharing with the world, and sometimes, you can find a few posts missing; that’s because my ever-wavering mind decides that the post is a bit too personal or just crappy.

I like beer and food. I party and I am a night owl. On weekends, I can be seen in the prominent night clubs of Bangalore and on weekdays, I can be seen, hung-over, trying to work! If you want to get in touch with me, then shoot me an email and I will be happy to make your acquaintance.

Sometimes, it’s best to take a few risks in life, like the time I almost decided to survive a week without a bath. It’s not so difficult. All it takes is a little bit of imagination, a bit of daring, few balls of steel and a total disregard for personal safety. Common sense can be abandoned somewhere, it’s a waste of time anyway.

Sometimes, I think to myself. I ask, “Nikhil, are you sure you are on the right track in this journey of life?”  I’m still waiting for the reply. The voice inside me that usually replies is away on a Mediterranean cruise and won’t be back for another year or so.

    Loved it!! I would be very happy to make your acquaintance. Mujhse dosti karoge?? (Please excuse the cheap imitation ;-))

  60. You seem like an interesting person :)

  61. I chanced upon your blog and found it very informative. The event blogs are striking enough to have a feel of the event, so, I would like to have a little chit-chat on your blogging interests. And even we are coming up with an event on startups on June 6th in Bangalore. So, can I have your contact details? Looking forward to hear from you.

  62. Hi,

  65. Dear Nikhil, we’ve tried our hand at a little something we call Advertising Atyachar, we need everyone with a sense of humor to tell us what they think about it. Hoping to hear from you. http://bit.ly/8XrYez

  66. In favour of leaving a comment in my About me I leave in your’s ;) Yes, Nandhini in Avesthagen should be me. These days it’s really uninteresting to know fellow Biotechnologists (How can I be so cruel to someone who is a freshly pressed still humble enough to leave a comment in my page :( )

    Fun apart, nice to know you Nikhil. Looks like SUNYand Rosewell were your pasts. What’s the present? Looks like you are really a popular writer and author too. Gotta look in more. And it’s interesting to know writers ;)

    P.S.Bloody Nobels are not for you. Leave it to the Bloodies.

  67. Last of all! A relevant,brilliant submit in regards to design . Thanks pertaining to posting this particular innovated and reasonable discourse while using the entire world.

  68. Whats up! I simply wish to give a huge thumbs up for the good info you have here on this post. I will probably be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  69. Hey Nikhil,

    Nice reading your blog again! Looking forward to reading more from you.

  70. thanks to your new layout i finally found your about page!…

    a daring, beer drinking junkie hmmm

    great stuff nikhil!

  71. @Eva626
    Haha! Thanks! Glad you like it.
    I’m so much more than that. :)

  72. Nikhil, nice blog, fresh ideas, like the way you express your thoughts, it is never easy to express your thoughts in writing, but you seem to have a wonderful grip over expressing your thoughts… Good job

  73. Hi Nikhil, I am writing to you on behalf of The Viewspaper regarding a major event on Twitter. If interested, please contact us at garvitak@theviewspaper.net

  75. hi. you rock. i like the way you write! i hope you read this.

    p.s. i stumbled upon your blog while absentmindedly googling what the fish. i thought it was an expression made famous in my country but apparently, practically millions are using it all over the globe. lol. i swear a lot so i thought what the fish is a good substitute. mighty helpful as well, you know, if you wanna be discreet, you can tell your girlfriend, babe im hot, cmon lets fish.. he he.

  76. Hey!
