About the Author
I am a biology undergrad, and I live in the constitutionally godless nation of India. I was born in Calcutta, and I am an occasional scribbler. I have studied in two wonderful convent schools. I hope to be an active participant in the struggle for intellectual and political emancipation, a desire that is sometimes helped, and often hindered, by my lifelong engagement with irony. I have been an atheist, or a-deist, for most of my life, even when I didn't know what it meant to be so.
