Welcome to my blog! Here, I hope to collect my reflections on issues that catch my attention and share some of my personal experiences that can plausibly resonate with my readers. Like most bloggers, the choice of my topics will largely be determined by a variety of my own identities — a student of Economics, a staunch believer in liberal democracy, a follower of developments in Indian political economy, and a gay man of colour trying to navigate in a white person’s world.

1. Cheap Talk: This category will contain all my writings on issues that generally interest people, such as articles on some social analyses, historical essays, economic interpretation, political surveys, etc. Please feel free to disagree with me in your comments.
2. Of Places and Faces: This category will contain my personal experiences in life. Here, I shall not only talk about the places I have been to, and the persons who impacted my life, but also reflect upon the broader philosophies and deeper truths of life which I have come to realize over the years.
3. The Inward Eye: I will post my favourite poems here. However, there’s one disclaimer – I will occasionally share some poems in Bengali, my mother-tongue. If you are not a Bengali, my apologies to you; but if you are one, just savour the poetic masterpieces!
4. Words Worth: Yes, you read it right. It’s not Wordsworth. This category will have words which have some more worth than my own — words of different wise men and women, who have shaped and will continue to shape human imagination for generations to come, I believe.
