Genius, I am the muse of ..

I am the muse of the psychoses, mania and non-alcoholic tortured geniuses. This is a link to the H2G2 musehome. Please drop by and say hello on my behalf too. Those interested in the subjects of genius, creativity and their relation to psychoticism (a personality indicating a predisposition toward a functional psychosis given enough emotional stress) may find reading the book "Genius: The natural history of creativity" by Hans Eysenck a rewarding (and enlightening) experience. I'm also a member of The H2G2 Motorcycle club

Me

I'm a 20 year old guy who lives in Pune, India. When I get time off from reading books, sketching portraits, playing sports, going on long rides, writing poetry and prose My poetry is hosted here, I study Mechanical Engineering in Vishwakarma Institute of Technology. Please don't bother visiting my college website - it's really lame.

I'm terribly BORED

How would I describe myself in a few sentences? I won't. Why don't you find out for yourself if you're interested. My email address is listed below.

Poetry

I started writing poetry due to a very egotistic reason - I just wanted to write good poetry. Some friends read a few and actually liked them. Some poems circulated around and some other people asked me to put some poems up on a webpage. Being the egocentric maniac that I am, I obliged immediately. You're welcome to check my poems out at shaunak.8m.net. I'd suggest you read Satiety and Why is daddy dead? first. They're the best of the lot put up there. I appreciate feedback about my poems. Please direct all feedback (-ve and +ve) to shaunak at gmx dot net and I'll respond within 3 days.

Other activities

I've recently started writing prose because people aren't really interested in poems that stretch for 100s of lines. I have an essay up in the h2g2 On the subject of Beauty. It still is quite incomplete, but worth a look. I sketch portraits because of a reason similar to a reason previously explained. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I have not uploaded any sketches nor do I plan to do so in the near future. I play quite a lot of sports when I feel like doing so (Soccer, Tennis, Cricket, Rowing, Cycling).

Music

Pt. Shivkumar Sharma, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Ustad Zakir Hussein, Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Mark Knopfler (ergo Dire Straits), Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Wagner, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters.
