NAME: A-Ku, (a.k.a Akshay, a.k.a
WHAT I DO: Writer/ wannabe Artist/ Founder of Meta Desi Comics
FAVOURITE READS: Dune by Frank Herbert, A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, Atomic Robo by Brian Clevenger
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.
Not much to say, compared to excitin’ lives like you folk out there.
A scribbler and writer when life permits, a music and nature lover, geek, day-dreamer, arm-chair philosopher and random road-tripper… And a strangely hopeful cynic from many accounts.
Started off as a writer at Maxim-India and some freelancing music/gig reviewer, I’ve since moved on to more fictional pursuits. Written comics for Holy Cow, Pop Culture Publishing and Comix.India and way back in the yore-days of 2013, founded Meta Desi Comics as a creator owned/friendly publishing imprint.
Also, can’t stop coming up with strange new ideas so end up writing a fair bit of short fiction here online.
Co-founded and was Editor/lead-writer for Comicaddicts.com from 2013, before work and life necessitated leaving and it shut down – but I continue to read and review comics as much as humanly possible. Also was part-time Indian Correspondent over at Bleeding Cool for a time.
Love to let my mind wander and at times it takes forever to find its way home.
Live to read, write and be merry – for who knows what tomorrow brings and as the 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.
