  • OKAY THEN, NAME SOME BOOKS THAT CHANGED YOU.

    Every book I read brings about a change. But, some all-time favourites are The Master and Margarita (by Mikhail Bulgakov), The Collected Works of Lewis Carroll, and magic realism of Borges (Jorge Luis Borges). As a genre, I read science fiction the most.

  • WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK?

    I don’t have a favourite book. I read a book a day. I’m currently reading four books. In my car, I have, at any given time, about 50 books. So, I am never caught without books . Again, I think that’s my fear (smiles). If you had to pinpoint a fear of mine, [it would be] to be stranded anywhere without a book.

  • SO, WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTH?

    The ability to see the world dispassionately and with great passion, at the same time. And I’m interested in everything — that is my biggest strength. Everything interests me. I can’t think of anything that is beyond my ability to be curious. And the second one is my huge unshakeable respect for everything — for ants and grass and the sky.

  • NOW THERE IS A COUNTERTERM — JOMO, JOY OF MISSING OUT.

    That’s a way of dealing with it (FOMO)... we say, if you are missing out, it is actually a good thing.

  • DO YOU HAVE FOMO?

    No. I simply couldn’t be bothered with missing out or not missing out because my life is so full anyway.

  • WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?

    My biggest fear (thinks for a while)... My biggest fear is of seeing beings in pain. I’m really appalled by pain; not by death — by pain. A lot of adults suffer from a strange primal fear of missing out, FOMO. It is an actual fear... ‘I didn’t get called out here; nobody loves me anymore’. I think the root of it is the fear of loss of love. You feel that you are not wanted or not loved.
