Aditya Gadre – A firm believer in the concept of blowing all your money on travel, he is also a sports buff, a failed musician, an alcohol enthusiast, and a proud cultural snob. He is a calm and composed chap with poetic abilities that rival Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings – appropriately he tweets at @angry_bard.
Aditya Rao – Aditya is a molecular biophysicist (whatever that means) working on intestinal cancer in Bangalore. He loves the weather, hates the city. In his spare time he enjoys horse-riding, photography, travelling, and talking about things he knows nothing of.
Aniruddh Sudharshan – Aniruddh thinks he is a writer and divides his time between the drawing room and the kitchen. He has no pets.
Mrinalini D.S – Mrinalini D.S is a US based writer-director. Also a musician, Mrinalini loves drama – only in movies, though.
Pradeep Ramarathnam – He invented the doosra way back when he was seven. After a red hot junior cricket career in the bylanes of Bangalore, he retired to some vigilante armchair cricketicism. Moved to the US mainly for Hulu and Netflix access. Tweets as @congusmaximus.
Prasanna Karmarkar – Pseudo intelllectual by day and honestly tired by night, Prasanna is the original jack-of-all-trades – a mechanical engineer by training, a programmer by experience and an educationist by calling. He is an avid traveller, a hobby photographer, an amateur musician and a film buff. He stays fit by exercising his free will, skipping dinner, and jumping to conclusions.
Priyambad Pattanayak – Editor of ‘The Gab Bar’, Priyambad is proud of the fact that he came up with that name. A “Sit-down” comedian, he is defined by a Tim Burton movie quote, with a twist “A man tells his jokes so many times that he becomes the jokes”! You can follow him on twitter @kalingone.
Ramesh Natarajan – When he was young, Ramesh used to contemplate whether his name would appear as R.Natarajan or Ramesh N on the Indian team scoreboard at no.5 below S.Tendulkar. Realizing his folly, he turned to underarm one-pitch one-hand cricket. He is also the quizzing equivalent of a journeyman tennis player.
Sambit Mishra – Sambit, a product of the pop-culture generation, has seen it all, but understood very little of it. Hunter S. Thompson worshipper. Anurag Kashyap fanboy. Wannabe wordsmith. Spends his waking hours trying to allay the suspicion that boredom is the ultimate truth. A healthy curiosity for all things trivial helps.
Sharan M.R. – Sharan, an economist, works in rural India and thinks his best days are real-life equivalents of watching Laxman perpetually bat.
Soumya Gayatri – Soumya is an avid reader and is deeply enchanted by “Mr. Darcy” from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. She loves travelling and her journeys into her husband’s life of cricket, form an interesting part of her travels rather travails.
Sudhir Pai – When he’s not writing ad copy, Sudhir Pai reminisces the era that defines Indian Cricket– the 90s. When Manoj Prabhakar opened the batting, Saurav Ganguly took the new ball, Anil Kumble fielded at backward point and Salil Ankola starred in Kora Kagaz. The boy of the 90s believes anything is possible, including him being asked to write about cricket.
Suraj Menon – Suraj gave up a promising career as a B-Grade South Indian movie star, to allegedly study biotech but really to abuse the “torrential” eco-system and watch random crap all day. After 4 years of pretending to work as a scientist, he is now enjoying a two year tax shelter that B-School provides. If either of you can bring him Tina Fey or Kaley Cuoco, follow him on twitter @surajmenon. Otherwise let him be in peace
Swaroop Mamidipudi – Swaroop Mami is a musician and lawyer who loves Truffaut as much as he loves Thalaivar. His writings on music, travel and cricket have appeared in Sruti, The Hindu, Times of India, Elite Traveler (Asia) and ESPNcricinfo.
