Siddarth like to have deep and meaningful conversations. Having a no-holds-barred discussion on any socio-political issue outside a tea shop with a glass of black tea would be his idea of a fine evening. Periyar and Ambedkar held his hand as he started taking baby steps in understanding the society and the politics of the land. Siddarth is now trying to clutch Marx’s hand to deepen his ken about the bizarre and exploitative ways in which the current world operates. He loves to read. He once wrote songs and played the guitar. Now he does that only on requests, and to make his friends feel special.
