India - Last active: 06/13/2014 - Tests: 3

I have worked on a couple of short films, have been writing poetry since I was 7 and I am an avid photographer as well. I am a Grammar Nazi, have worked for 2 years in a music label and then almost a year with Walt Disney India and I LOVE food. I will retreat into the jungles one day to study wildlife psychology for the rest of my life, that's the dream. So yes, I may come across as slightly incoherent here, but it is wiser to keep chaos and disarray close to you when you want to conquer the world in the very little time that you have.
