Journalist by day, pop culture junkie by night, Bijoy Bharathan has an insatiable appetite for world cinema of the highbrow, middle-brow, and occasionally boondocks variants. In his spare time, he likes to devour graphic novels on his laptop, every once in a while struggling with a real book with all text and no pictures. He loves overnight journeys to strange new towns, that afford him an opportunity to take long walks and hone his photography skills. He has a weakness for swimming, roadside chai and the music of Moby.
