"Anyone who spends a significant amount of time with me finds me disagreeable."

I am a national award nominated creative writer, satirist and story teller who blogs at Blog.VHBelvadi.com
and tells captivating stories on his flash-fiction blog, Off Season
I also write essays, guides on blogging and creative writing in general; and maintain my own semi-personal journal on my blog
I am an amateur photographer and I shoot landscapes, black & whites, nature, still lives, street & documentary fine art photographs. I have, on occasion, also shot people.
My photography is all aimed at my one, personal goal: to create my own surrealistic world with my works.
My gear: Gear doesn't matter.
A word about my photography: all of my works are licensed under a Creative Commons CC-BY-SA license
which means you can do absolutely anything you want with my photographs so long as you credit me for the original
I am an amateur violinist and a hobbyist composer of western classical music, often set for (but not limited to) the violin, piano, cello, guitar or a combination of these.
Composers I enjoy are Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Schubert, Liszt, Schumann, Grieg, Holst, Bach, Debussy, Offenbach, Handel, Hadyn, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Wagner, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Strauss and Rachmaninoff, to start with.
While everything you read so far was my hobby or passion, my first love (mostly) is physics. I'm currently majoring in physics and intend to become an astrophysicist.
I feel more at home with numbers than humans, and like to experiment or simply sit with a book and do maths/physics boundlessly.
I am also a hobbyist filmmaker and have completed three short films and have one in pre-production (see them here
). I am also a big film buff, have been told am a good actor and I am mostly a nerd with a great love of action figures, comic books, technology by and large, Star Trek, Pi, novels, super heroes, cycling, swimming, learning languages, HALO, RoboCop, the Godfather, LOTR and MIB; I also have a deep dislike of Facebook and particularly like Google+, Android, Open Source-ware and Google in general.
I wear a gold replica of The One Ring around my neck hung on a chain a la Frodo Baggins.
