I am Arun(k) from India, and I live with my wife and kid in a suburb near Chicago. I came to the US ages ago. You can say I am old enough to be close to a mid-life crisis and maybe that starting this blog is one of the symptoms.
Note: The (k) is there as some people on the web know me as arunk.
My current interests include carnatic music, programming as a hobby, (talking about) sports, and dreaming about vacations in exotic places! Sometimes those dreams do come true.
My past interests include classic rock (Pink Floyd, and a bunch of other bands), fantasy novels, tamil film music, and playing the guitar. They have sort of faded ever since I discovered the beauty of carnatic music (perhaps coincidental with a receding hairline, and graying sideburns), and also realizing the futility of using any of my past “talent” to play carnatic music on the guitar. I still relive these interests once in a while, but I note with some sadness that it is not with the same passion as before.
