Hi! My name is Jay-Ram (pronounced as “Jay-ROM”) and I’m an industrial chemist who enjoys writing fiction. I believe that you already know what you need to do in life, so I write to give your mind a break from your construct of reality: to travel mentally with me to another world. I personally enjoy reading self-help books by authors such as Seth Godin and Tim Ferriss, and fictional work from Stephen King and Haruki Murakami. My ethnicity is Indian-American, or as “the man” sees me: brown. I fluently speak Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Spanish, English, and I achieved these skills by visiting many Southeast Asian countries at a young age. My immersion in different countries helped me become culturally aware; in other words experienced in squatting over ground toilets, getting bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes at night, and getting my food stolen by monkeys in India.
