NAMIT ARORA'S WRITING

NAMIT, the founder of Shunya, grew up in the Indian cow-belt city of Gwalior, famous for its fort and the first epigraphic evidence of zero. His training at IIT Kharagpur led him to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for a masters in computer engineering, and a great escape to Silicon Valley in the early '90s. In his day job over the next two decades, he played a cog in the wheel of Internet technology at three failed startups and at Nokia, Cisco, and McAfee. This didn't make him wise, but did enable him to attend lectures of dubious practical value at Stanford and to live, work, or travel in scores of countries, including yearlong stints in London and Amsterdam. He quit this line of work in mid-2013 and moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Delhi NCR.

During a two-year break (2004-06), Namit traveled across India and created a photojournal. Over 15 museums, 30 academies, and 45 publishers have licensed his photos. His essays have appeared in venues like the Humanist, the Caravan, Philosophy Now, Himal Southasian, the Kyoto Journal, the Philosopher, and four college anthologies in the U.S. He has a column on 3 Quarks Daily and has finished a novel that he hasn't published yet. Namit's review of Joothan won the 3 Quarks Daily 2011 Arts & Literature Prize. His recent work includes River of Faith, a documentary film about the Kumbh Mela.
