While I was thinking of redoing the blog and all other online presence, I was thinking on the lines of making a mockery of my narcissism online. The initial thought was to find something that is about the first person. On the lines of ‘thannai mattume kurikkum’ and then the word ‘Tharkuri’ came to mind – the irony of it all.
So, for the over-educated, under-qualified, confused person that I am ‘Tharkuri’ was the right identity. I decided to stick to it and I have ever since.
P.S: Tharkuri in Tamil means illiterate.
Just another run-of-the-mill blogger who has an opinion about everything. Over-educated, under-qualified, under-paid, confused, impossible feminist. I strongly believe that intelligence only leads to cynicism and melancholy. Satisfaction is a farce and happiness is a lie. On the bright side, I have an empty ashtray, a few books and Twitter account (oh wait!). I strongly believe that <edit on 23 March 2012 as per comment below> “Hope is the most treacherous of all human fancies”.
