A raver at heart - the only way I can aptly describe me is a bouncing ball of sheer energy. Blame it all on my air sign - but I find it extremely difficult to affix myself a certain spot (apart from when I'm sitting in with my hi-tech paraphernalia) . Traveling's foremost on my itinerary. Photography comes only second to that.. and of course there's my computer - which is the very essential elixir of life for me & deserves a special mention. My free time's spent in mastering the art of spinning Fire-Pois as well as having fun with my other trip toys. If you've no clue as to what Pois are, check out this site: http://www.homeofpoi.com/ The roar of blazing fire rushing past your ears gives you the most natural high ever. Apart from that Meditation helps me a lot in the course of daily life. I envision myself retiring to a li'l recluse on some secluded white-sanded island surrounded by azure waters - someday in not-too-far future.. and rave like a mad cow till my last breath... ;) On a side note, a lot of my friends have been complaining about the lack of my proper name anywhere in my profile... So here it goes - yours truly is better known as Sourjya Sankar Sen. :D Yeah, I know it's pretty long & winding & almost teeth-breaking, but my name does compliment my length and breadth quite well.
