Being the sort of person who can’t go to bed without reading a book, I spend half my salary on books every month.

It’s Not A Competition

If one were to analyse the state of English stand-up comedy in India, it would appear to have undergone a huge change. From being an oblivious and unexplored field, today it has become a part of mainstream cultural commodity in metropolitan cities.
