An explanation (added exactly year too late about what the blog name means): https://freestylerevolution.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/what-does-converse-with-kurti-mean-anyway/
I’m an engineering student at Columbia University in New York. I also occasionally inflict my writing on the world as a way of sorting the thoughts out in my own head. Recently a friend and I were musing why anyone didn’t tell us how to survive the roller-coaster advice of being a teenager. It’s a moot point whether we would have accepted said advice or not, but I try to capture most of my defining opinions on this blog. I would like to think of it as a way of empathizing with all those other confused souls out there who have inconclusive results of analyzing their own behavior. You are not alone.
I’m from Bangalore, India (Silicon Valley represent). I’ve been influenced by way too many sci-fi movies (and Asimov’s works) in my childhood and have decided to make a career out of it. I’m currently studying Computer Science and Applied Math, specializing in Artificial Intelligence. I’m also a science fiction/linguistics enthusiast with a passion for good literature, anything Star Trek and Indian food. Analyzing how robots are portrayed in popular culture, practicing a machine voice (just to confuse Siri), creating endless lists (self-explanatory), jamming out to melodic dubstep music and maintaining this blog are my favorite ways of procrastinating.
I’m also a part of a student activist group that works to create a safe space for survivors of sexual assault, because that’s something I feel strongly about.
I’ve also decided to integrate the stories that I write into this blog, so as to provide a more complete picture of the alternate dimension that is my mind and all of its oddities. Please strap your seat-belts on before proceeding and thank you for accompanying me on this journey to self-realization.
