Hey, folks! It's Akash Kumar, one can & one should call me AMOS (Akash Man of Sky). I am a 16 years old masti-loving teenager. It's my pleasure to be a Motiharian that is to live in Motihari. I don't know what to call it when Patna & Varanasi are being called "Small towns". My town boasts of being the birthplace of Millennium writer- George Orwell (Remember 1984, Animal Farm) & of turning ‘Mohandas’ into 'Mahatma'. Now, let me come to myself again. I have appeared for my Xth grade examinations this year and that's why, I am facing a dilemma what to opt for. Obviously, I like reading books & writing pieces of reading stuff in Hindi as well as English & Yeah, Social Science is my favourite subject but don't I know that it loses to science in offering a range of lucrative career options. (Satire intended!) I am a simply-awesome type of guy who likes to form an opinion of his at every point possible. I am unique (I know everyone is) & I like making my pen traverse the pages of my beautiful life. My lucky number is 7, the day on which I was born, the number which is considered very pious in Hinduism. And, last but not the least Hrithik Roshan is my favourite Actor.

Hi, I am Ankit. I belong to a new race of Mechanical Engineers, who fancy supercomputers more than steam engines. Who loves art and loves even more to code some art pieces. A friendly person yet have only few of them really close to my heart. Some say I am an optimist, some think I have qualities of a pessimist, and the rest of the world thinks I am just another realist... but you know what ? In reality it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you. I am Batman :-). Always trying to do something out of the world in my quest to reach beyond infinity.

Anunoy enjoys creative writing and loves photography. He has gradually discovered that travelling cum travel-writing is the best way to blend those two different elements of art. Despite being attached to a profession that doesn’t quite match with the liberty of travelling, he always manages to steal time to keep up with his travel-mantra by Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the
things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Anupama is a lifestyle blogger which means an amalgamation of a passionate traveller, an ardent bookworm, a crazy foodie, a dreamy achitect, a photographer who sees beauty in inconspicuous details and a freaky player of words. She has been blogging for about six years now at Volatile Spirits.

Hi! I'm Deeptiman Chatterjee, also known as The Shameless Blogger. Why shameless? Firstly, because I wrote an explicitly comic post on 'urination' recently. And second, because I blog only to brag about me - my amazing life, my amazing childhood, my amazing friends, my amazing work - and shamelessly so, as you will soon see! My blog is not restricted to any particular genre. Yes, majority of it would be humour. But it does get sentimental at times while some other times it just remains mental. Sometimes it raises social issues! Other times, it lazily rates and reviews movies. Sometimes it roams around for fun, taking photos. And most of the times, its just stuck with the writers' block. I try to balance between higher studies and blogging - keeping both, as a hobby. I'm here in IBL for the challenge, the getting-to-know-other-bloggers and the gossip. And also the food that Priyanka di and Debdatta di promised afterwards!'

Mohit K Jain (K for Kumar, I use the full form only for "official" purposes)
I'm 20, male and I have spent the 20 years on this planet in two cities mostly - Guwahati and Indore. I'm fond of 3 things in life - Food, Books and Writing. I don't like travelling and love to be at home (you can call me lazy too, i don't mind). Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Nicholas Sparks and Dan Brown are my favourite English Novelists and Munshi Premchand, Sumitranandan Pant and Mahadevi Varma are the same in Hindi to me.  I like things to be simple in all walks of life - right from my food, clothes to my views. 
Last, but not the least, I write to feel free. Writing gives me a sense of accomplishment. Every finished piece of writing for me is no less then climbing atop Mt. Everest. To put it simply, Writing makes me happy. :)

An engineer by profession, an aspiring manager-to-be (in the future) by studies, Prashanth is a person who has varied interests in life, but at times overcome by laziness to actually pursue them. Blogging, though, is an exception, as he believes writing gives him a sense of exhilaration. Currently an NRI, Prashanth loves to write about places he visits and experiences he goes through. An optimist by nature, he believes that people should never resort to their "destiny", but keep fighting the battle, even if it would be a losing one.

I remember my childhood days reading anything and everything that started with 'once upon a time'..which marked the beginning of my fascination with stories and my love for them gradually multiplied in a way which makes me write some short ones regularly till date...hoping to pen some really nice stories in future as well.

Then drifted back to a job in the security sector and have been at the managerial level in guarding, Cash in transit and then industrial security with a major steel manufcaturer In Karnataka(JSW).
Then took up a faculty position with a Outward Bound Learning Institute at Bangalore. And now I am with an apparel manufacturing and retail brand and operate from Pondicherry. I am in charge of Marketing and am looking forward to creating an online store with our brand called 'Toby'.
Online Writing is my hobby and I write articles for a few content sites

I am an aspiring freelance online writer and wish to produce content for
blogs and websites. I blog occasionally at Jugaadu Internet. Please visit my blog.
