About The Author
Namit Arora grew up in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India. Following IIT Kharagpur (1989) and a Master's in Computer Engineering from Louisiana State University, USA (1991), he played a cog in the wheel of Internet technology in Silicon Valley for nearly two decades. This didn't make him wise but it enabled him to attend lectures of dubious practical value at Stanford University and to live, work, or travel in scores of countries, including yearlong stints in London and Amsterdam, as well as extended stays in India. In 2013, he quit his high-tech profession and moved back to India. In 2015, he began volunteering for the Dialogue and Development Commission, an advisory body of the Delhi government tasked to find innovative solutions to civic problems.

Namit wrote a column on 3 Quarks Daily for many years. His essays have also appeared in venues like The Humanist, Philosophy Now, The Times Literary Supplement, The Caravan, The Kyoto Journal, The Philosopher, Himal Southasian, and four college anthologies in the US. His review ofJoothan won the 3 Quarks Daily 2011 Arts & Literature Prize.

Namit's photography has been licensed by over 15 museums, 30 academies, 50 media and publishing houses, and many government agencies and NGOs. His videography includes River of Faith, a documentary film about the Kumbh Mela. He lives with his partner Usha Alexander and mutually chose to be childfree. His home on the web is
