  4. ok . i m sorry. been readin ur blog for the past 5 posts and NEVER imagined u are the simoquin prophet! and 2 thnk i was so thrilled when i heard of ur book long back 2 finally find indians in SF/F.
    me i wrote 2 stories on indianscifi.com but the site just died down(archives might still b there) and i just stopped thinkin there’s no future to it.
    btw stumbled on ur blog from other bong blogs and this comment by rahaman suddenly awoke my memories and google got me to sffworld where u hav a forum and thence to Ul-Gobi 🙂
    gr8 work man. nice 2 know u (if reading ur blog qualifies me for tht)…

  8. you’re sitting at a terminal…?

    You’ll never get your work done ! You don’t know why it’s called a terminal? Or a work station?

    Work stops/dies !

    Get out of Gurgaon before it’s too late !!
