I have wondered how one word descriptions would go for certain people. Let’s start with easy ones:
A footballer is a person who plays football A fisherman is a person who catches fish A comedian is a person who acts comically And . Arun Ravindran is a person who always keeps reading
Well, this profound insight can be easily proven if you know my daily routine. The moment my mecum covered eyes crack open late morning, I fumble for my mobile phone to read the time. At the station, I read the next available train timing. I read Metro while traveling in the tube. Once I’m at office, I spend almost all my time reading numerous documents either on my PC or printouts. As a persistent hangover from my days on bench (a term for no project assigned), I read/browse hundreds of web pages for news and trivia. Thanks to the huge void in my life brought by the absence of a TV (fondly referred to as telly in the UK), I spend my time creatively reading books or Sunday supplements.
Now that you know what kind of creature I am, it must come as no surprise to you that I have managed to get a library membership in London. Jason Goode, a really friendly guy in my office, managed to lead me into the maze called Barbican Center. The membership was free and one can take up to 12 books for 3 weeks. You can reissue by phone up to 3 times. Though lacking in the technology section, it was well stacked in varied fields of art. I spend many delightful moments discovering sections unheard of such as Paranormal Studies, Videography etc. I managed to find 2 books on photography. Owing to their picture-book format, I have lapped them up in no time. As a strange consequence, I now find myself reading more information in every photograph I put my eyes on. Seems some creatures never change, they just evolve ;)
