About Arun Koul

I am your average guy, trying to make a place for myself in this universe. In my experience of 25 years in this world, I have learnt a few things, I am learning a few things and will keep learning more. This blog is an honest attempt to put forward some thoughts and reflect on them in a humorous, sarcastic and sometimes blunt manner. Hopefully learning will continue forever !!!

It was 14th March 1987, sometime around 1 am at night; sorry can’t give you the exact time.
