All my life people have told me that they have never met a person quite like me. Do not get me wrong. It is not always a compliment. Depending on the person, I can be enlightening or exasperating; illuminating or incendiary; philosophical or pedantic. It is all in the eyes of the beholder, and I never consider the beholder to be beholden to me in any way. I am a complex, simple individual. That is not an oxymoron, if one thinks about it. I am a pan-planetary Indian-American... a rational, logical mix of traditional and avant-garde. I believe in always maintaining my deep roots in Indian culture, but simultaneously imbibing the best of whatever culture I am exposed to. I am a cultural omnivore, but a culinary vegan. I am not macho. I am unabashedly, a sensitive, emotional male who thinks that tears can enhance one's manliness. I have never hit a person in my life. I will walk away from a needless fight with my pride intact, but I am always prepared to defend my loved ones. Gregarious, funny, friendly, empathic, kind, generous, and loving - you have to decide whether that is true of me. I have a need to look in the mirror of my life, and not feel ashamed. I am my most caustic critic. Blame it on my Vedic sense of Dharma and Karma. Lead a good life. Harm no creature. Have the self-confidence to let the chips fall where they may. Intelligent selfishness is the only true path to altruism, and to the liberating enlightenment of nirvana. I am very trusting, even though I have paid a heavy price for it all my life. I will not change, however, because while it may open me up to exploitative pain, it also opens me up to transcendent joy. One cannot selectively shut the doors to one's heart, and expect angels to walk on through. Doors are either open or shut, to both the devils and the gods. The devils cannot devour me. The multi-armed goddesses fill me with reverence, never awe. I consider myself ultra-liberal. I am also surprisingly conservative in many ways, especially in what is known in the west as family values. This understanding is instilled in me by my ancient Vedic Hindu philosophy. Pigeon-holing me is a fool's errand. I have strong opinions on almost everything, but I am always open to new ideas. If I hear a logical, rational reason to change my opinion, I will do so, and have done so all my life. After all metamorphosis, does transform the earthbound caterpillar. I am not a lepidopteran soul... yet, and I may never be. I am good at anything that I put my mind to, except sports. My talents all spring from a geographical location between my ears. I am currently learning how to cook. Indian and Asian cooking requires a good olfactory system. I do not have one. I have to think my way past that handicap. My list of likes is long and winding, touching lots of the nooks and crannies of life. My wandering bootheels take me down the twisty, serpentine alleyways of familiar and alien cultures. I end up finding new interests, and shedding some old ones. Conversations, especially philosophical ones, are one of my greatest pleasures. My physical needs are few and simple - air, water, food, clothing, shelter, and love. The rest is just icing on my vegan cake. I am a very low-maintenance man, with very high standards. Think about it, and it makes sense... like being intelligently selfish makes one automatically altruistic. Do not think... feel. Thinking is overrated. Think less. Feel your core. Life will be more. Feeling incorporates thinking, just as surely as eating involves tasting. Life is just an escape from death. Chaos and entropy are the order of the universe. This realization is liberating. I have a very simple philosophy for my life: Let your heart guide, but let your head decide. India is a land populated by the faithless non-believers. Faith is belief in the unknown. Belief leads to false confidence that lacks clarity. Indians are seekers, glued together by the common questions we ask, but not divided by the multitude of divergent answers we find. We revel in discovering our ignorance, because it leads to clarity without confidence. The future is important to me, but the present is equally important, because I have to get through it to reach the future. I am no longer a teenager, with seemingly infinite amounts of time at my disposal. Enough said. I do not really feel comfortable tooting my own horn. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Talk to me. Make your own decision. The way I see myself, may not be the way you see me.
