About meI am a fan of classical literature (from any tradition) above all. I prefer works leaning towards philosophy than simply clever interplay of words (though that does have its place). The epic, the Fruhromantik, the Renaissance...that's my cup of soma.

I can read works in English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Latin, Persian, and Urdu.
