Autobiography of Anand Bose

I come from a small hamlet of Kurianoor in Kerala known as God’s Own Country. I began my iconoclasm at a very early stage in life. When I was being baptized, I pissed on the cassock of the priest. Constantly I used to waver between heresy and Christian belief. I didn’t know my vocation but in my midyears I became convinced of my destiny to be a writer. My weltanschauung has been shaped by Philosophy and Religion and I construct my values based on it. Philosophically speaking I consider myself to be a Philistine embracing the hedonism of the Greeks. I also consider myself to be an existential nihilist and a postmodern deconstructionist. Religiously speaking, I am a disgruntled Christian, an atheist Muslim and a materialist Hindu. I belong to all nations and nationalities as a free citizen. I embrace my angst with Stoic courage and celebrate my joys as a Greek Corybant. I invite you to visit my websites and see what I have written. My favorite quotes are: Sartre’s: ‘Existence Precedes Essence’ and Derrida’s: ‘To write is to have the passion of Origin’ and also Bakthin: ‘The way in which I create myself is by means of a Quest. I go out into the world in order to come back with a self’. Please feel free to visit my websites:
