Interests Reading - just about anything - the more varied the better, Shayari - novice, Philosophizing - mostly gossiping with myself. You see, I like good company. Agonizing with Nietzsche - considering whether man has been God's mistake or God has been man's! Generally, agree with the latter statement.
