|Location||New Delhi / New York, United States|
|Introduction||Music, Literature, Food, Poetry, Intelligence, Philosophy, Religion piques my interest. I like being in company of intelligent people. I love being in solitude often. I sing in the shower sometimes. I tried my hand once in playing the guitar. Adroitness eluded me. I like to eat from roadside vendors. I fancy myself as being a little bit of a writer - accentuated to a great degree when I am intoxicated. I haven't worked out a great deal in the past one year and I'd like to start again. I hate shopping malls, hate the consumerist hysteria that grips the nation around the holiday season. I like to think I am not totally daft. And I know I can love with total abandon. I love New Delhi and New York. When I was seven, I wanted to play hockey for India. When I was ten, it was cricket. When I was twelve, my passions turned to football (or Soccer, for my American friends). By the time I hit my teens, I didn't have the foggiest clue as to what I wanted to do. When I was fifteen, me and a friend started a rap group called Osmium Kelas - the manifesto was to compose rap music to heavy metal riffs. Didn't really get that far. A contradiction.To myself.|

What spells can you cast with magic markers?
I got a dumb random question. Not even sure what it means!
