Well, I thought why not let you have an insight into the persons behind those beautiful articles that has put some quality into this blog. So, I asked them to write about themselves and here are they, in their own words:
WHO? ROTO CHOBIN!
I was born at Hao po lyang or Hapoli (Arunachal) on February 27. When I was little I was fond of playing doctor – dissecting frog, rat, etc. Seeing me doing this, my father hoped I would become doctor someday and sent me to boarding school at Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh) when I was just 11 years old where I met ‘AG’ and some very nice fellow. While I am still at boarding school, my curiosity in anatomy gradually faded away as the magic of words and sentences began to fascinate me more. And the discovery of Enid Blyton, the Hardy Boys’ series and all, helped me greatly to opt for humanities stream after my matriculation. My father was bit upset when he learnt about my decision. I still love reading both fiction and non-fiction. My favorite authors are – John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer, Robin Cook, etc. As for the books; I love to read the biography of Lee Iaococca, the diary of Anne Frank, and so on and so forth.

That’s all. Me - in a nutshell.

Two years back, when AG asked me if I would like to contribute in his blog ‘the arunachal diary’, I accepted his offer readily. I wasn’t sure what I was going to contribute but I thought of using it as an opportunity to rediscover the hobby of my school days. Then I thought of using some fancy pseudonyms like most people do in net. “No,” I told myself. “I’m trying to rediscover my school days’ hobby – by using pseudonym I’ll be little too casual with what I’m doing – and I’ve to be responsible for what I write, if at all I do – so why under cover of pseudonym.” Therefore, I gave up the idea of using pseudonym. Umm…Why I am writing this? Actually, I am fed up with ‘PROFILE TO BE UPDATED’ written below my name, for almost two long years, in Guest Authors page of AD. So updating my profile…
