Hmmm, I’m not a very surprising guy but there are things that people, over here atleast, are surprised to learn about me.
That I am an atheist – in the land of a 1000 gods and 10000 temples! Yeah, I get a lot of questions and incredulous responses on that one.
That I can’t read Malayalam – I am ashamed of that one but I don’t let it affect my life.
That I don’t like cricket, Bollywood, Malayalam classical music, Tamil music (especially by that hack Rahman) and Hindi songs! Sue me!
Some people are surprised when I tell them my age! A vast majority think that I am younger than my age but a handful of people have thought that I am older. I do not know what to think of that. I think I look around my age & probably a bit younger but people are, you know, stupid! But I don’t think I look 4 to 5 years older than my age!
People are surprised in my taste in music. I do have a varied taste and as I grew older, have cared two farts for what is trendy and popular. I listen to what I like and the artists that I like are vast and varied.
