NAME: A-Ku, a.k.a Akshay, a.k.a the blogger formerly known as Spider42
WHAT I DOES: Writer/ wannabe Artist/ Founder of Meta Desi Comics
FAVOURITE READ: Dune by Frank Herbert
MOST EASILY DISTRACTED BY: Wonderful toys, shiny ideas and wondering “How do you handcuff a one-armed man?”
GREATEST REGRET: Once discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down.
WHAT IS SATANS LAST NAME: …Claus?
A writer when life permits, a music and nature lover, (attempted) humourist, nerd, scribbler, day-dreamer, arm-chair philosopher and random road-tripper… A strangely hopeful cynic from all accounts.
Starting off as a staff-writer at Maxim-India, I’ve since moved on to more fictional pursuits. Written comics for Holy Cow, Pop Culture Publishing, Comix.India and under Meta Desi’s own banner, besides writing a lot of short fiction on my blog.
I also co-founded and was Editor/lead-writer for comicaddicts.com before work and other responsibilities caused me to leave and it to shut down – but I continue to read and review comics as much as humanly possible while continuing to write and dream up new worlds! Currently do advance reviews for Outright Geekery and am an Indian correspondant for BleedingCool.
Love to let my mind wander and at times it takes forever to find its way home.
I live to read, write and be merry – for who knows what tomorrow brings and as the late, great philosopher once said, “Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, and I’m going to be happy in it.” (Groucho Marx)
Question for YOU: How can something be both “new” and “improved”? If it’s new, what is it improving?
So if you’re willing to join me on my whimsical and somewhat meandering journey through the ins and outs of things in the world or simply need a place to laugh, cry, be amused and bemused and the like – then drop in anytime and grab a metaphorical (or literal if you prefer) drink with me and contemplate the vagaries and varieties of the world we inhabit.
