Hello there, I’ll be joining BrownPundits as a contributor.
Some of you may have encountered me on Facebook (I’m active on many groups) and I’v commented on here and other blogs before, but for those who haven’t yet. Here’s a short introduction to get you more familiar.
My real name is Hassan, I’m of a UP/Awadhi background on both sides of my family. Even though nearly all of it save for some relatives have relocated to Pakistan and from Pakistan to a plethora of other countries.
I have an academic background in economics/math. As you can expect from that I like to take a quantitative look at things. I have an interest in linguistics, history and psephology. Last but not least I plan on writing about South Asian Diaspora related issues. Recently I have started writing my own poetry and may share some. But I’ll write about a wide host of topics.
I also run some South Asian-related groups on Facebook and you are free to join.
