Santosh is the quintessential computer guy. Among the things that he loves are web development, webtoons, learning esoteric programming languages and animes. His idea of happiness isn’t unattainable - an overnight marathon of programming and animes.
Tunnel Engineer whose life is boring. You can find him playing D&D as a charismatic and oblivious Bard, rage quitting in Age of Empires, smiting Gods in Smite and pretentiously pretending to read books.
He has academically dabbled in film-making and architecture, while his co-curricular outputs include screenplays, short stories, and some research work for a future novel. Apparently, he believes everyone's got one. He looks for mind-bending post-modernist stuff, like Philip K. Dick, David Foster Wallace, the unabashedly flowery prose of Salman Rushdie, and classic works which aim to push the boundaries of what constitutes a classic.
Jay likes to edit stuff. We appointed him as an editor. The world makes sense again.
Nikita is stuck in time, a side effect of reading too many classics at a young age. She is one of those who still writes letters and sends postcards. Her heart belongs to English, and mind to Economics, which she pursues at Miranda House. You can find her sitting alone, reading poetry or drinking in the sights of her red-bricked college. Or simply slaving away on her college work. Nikita dreams with her eyes open, and hopes to make something out of her scribbles.
Chaitali is pursuing graduation in English literature and Economics from Delhi University. The early acquaintance to the cult classics of the Indian cinema, and a few minutes with a pen and paper, created in her a liberal soul asking for more than just farce romanticism. Being a part of a prominent theatre society, strong feminists like Ismat Chughtai and Virginia Woolf imbibe in her a liberal observer. Also, her constant inspiration lies in the beautifully written poems of Pablo Neruda, Sylvia Plath, T.S. Eliot and the great Ghalib. Sadat Hasan Manto's fearless writings are what she yearns for.
Brinda is a lawyer without a degree. She’ll read anything, as long as it’s fictional. She loves fantasy because the real world is terrifying and she’d rather not live there. She also likes history, mythology and really anything that enables her escapist tendencies. Currently she’s living in Mumbai and trying to figure her life out.
Avid writer, ardent reader, and procrastination enthusiast. Likes to hang out with books but being social is a skill she has yet to master. Absolutely vibes with thunderstorms.

Like Kent Clark, Kanika is far away from home working 9 to 5 at Morgan Stanley as Business Analyst. However, she doesn't save the world (yet). In her free time, she likes to binge read, eat, Netflix and sleep (in no particular order). What fascinates her is the history of literature. She spends her time reverse engineering words shape the world.

Ex-Engineer + Ex-Public Relations Exec. If this combination hasn't surprised you enough then don't bother to know that Cherryy is a human repository of all 90s Rock, Rap and Sitcoms trivia that you probably don't care about. Culture and behaviour analyst by passion, she's a management student by profession at the Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA). She believes she can only be happy 'till there's no global movement against dark humour and is on an unapologetic pursuit of "catching flights, not feelings".
Vani prefers her puns intended. She is inquisitive, affable, and loves anything Spanish. She is a passionate debater, enjoys writing about various issues, reading non-fiction, poetry and cramming her mind with unusual ideas in her free time. She is pursuing her undergraduate studies at the University of Delhi.
Shashwat loves to explore obscure histories of words, phrases, beliefs and more of everyday things. More so, he loves to have discussions about recently read (great) books. He has unrelenting appetite for wide ranging conversations that could take place in domains of psychology, literature, various world religions, technology, spirituality and also random mundane musings.

If Karishma had a Twitter bio, it would say genial and rebellious. Despite her attempts to appear mysterious and dark like Wednesday Addams, she's actually a Helga. Her father was in the Indian Army and she attended Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan, where she was the school captain in her final year. After that she had not applied to any other university after school except for Delhi, and didn’t exactly score 99% in her boards, so she gave ECA auditions for debating and studied economics for a year at Miranda. Sadly, her classmates at Miranda loved economics and she felt like a sham. She realised she didn’t really love Miranda or economics the way she should’ve, and so took up English literature at KMC and started all over again. She loves being a flower girl, wearing brightly colored tie-and-dye clothes from Janpath and listening to the Beatles. Her favorite podcasts are ‘Stuff Mom Never Told You About’ on How Stuff Works. Spontaneity and travelling are perpetual goals for Karishma, and she further plans to write Judy Blume-esque tales for children.
