About me

Words that describe me: Queer. Indian. Itinerant. Writer, feminist, geeky literary theorist. Bookworm. Playful feminine switch.

Words that describe my body: Small, contained, chai-coloured, with long black hair and a figure vaguely reminiscent of temple statuary.

Other people’s words: John Donne, Valmiki, Virginia Woolf, Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth, Mary Oliver, Jeanette Winterson, Ani Difranco, Javed Akhtar, Fiona Apple, Rumi, Sarah Waters, Georges Perec.

Places that are important: New York, New Delhi, San Francisco, Vancouver, Berkeley, Chicago, rural small-town Midwest, Bangalore, London, Hong Kong.

Turn ons: wordplay, articulacy, androgyny, slow dawning smiles, intellectual curiosity, hands, confidence, dark chocolate, gender/literary/feminist theory, strong-voiced female singers, fleeting but repeated eye-contact, eating kulfi, women who move gracefully in saris.

Turn offs: superficiality, entitlement, drunks, drones (of any sex), arrogance, homophobes, peanut butter.
