Ananthajith tries to understand the inter-connectedness of things. In that quest, he believes, he will find why certain permutation-combinations of words are beautiful. He also knows how to chop things with a claw grip. Books, knives, and percussion instruments fascinates him. Also tries to learn calligraphy and photography. Ananthajith occasionally writes poems and other wordy stuff, but is (not always) amazed by the lack of quality and style in them.
Sruthi Ranjani is a second year student whose current hobbies include reading, watching TV shows, learning languages, cooking and eating (a lot). Besides being an incurable Potterhead, she is consumed by wanderlust, is a romantic and is intrigued by the cultural diversity of the world. The French and the Malayalis are her current particular interests (not to mention their accents). She strongly feels she was born a century too late; if you want to make her feel at home, giving her a good old 19th century classic and a cup of tea should do it.

He manages to make time for everything from acads to extra curriculars to people, never tiring.
