My name is Shashikiran Mullur. I was born in Mysore, a university town, and erstwhile capital of the Mysore State. I was raised in small towns across Karnataka, and then I went back to Mysore for graduate studies.

Here are posts on Bangalore, where I live and work as a manufacturer of aerospace and military parts; on Malnad, where I'm an absentee coffee planter; on travel; and on my journeys in India.

Lately, the lull cast by the Covid contagion has prodded me to comment on the state of our union — the jottings of a layperson, really, but I hope to get better as I go on.

Do visit often!

I'm active on Instagram, and keep a presence on Twitter. I quit Facebook September, 2020.
