In the wise words of D.H.Lawrence, I am a "tremulation on the ether." This gypsy soul is a student of History (DU), the subject being his amor primus. Loves to travel across time and reconstruct the past. Is a dream weaver and seeks solace in the shady bowers of literature. Anthropology and archaeology intrigues this person,and his keen interest in folk arts and tribal social structures allowed him to serve as an intern at the Daricha foundation. His life is set to the tunes of Hindustani Classical music, and is a disciple of Padma Vibhushan Dr. Girija Devi of the Senia-Banaras gharana.
