The Universe is defined as “the summation of all particles and energy that exist and the space-time which all events occur.” [Wikipedia*]. It spans trillions and trillions of light years, a never ending, shape-less, void that expands radically with every passing fraction of time. A tiny speck in that universe is the Milky Way Galaxy. A minute dot on the outer arm of the Milky Way Galaxy is our very own Solar System. The largest terrestrial planet in this solar system is The Earth. Of the 510,065,600 square Kilometres of the Earth’s surface area, my person occupies less than half a square metre.

So when you view the bigger picture, why is it so important to know “about” the writer of this blog? He is, after all, someone who has an observer’s role in the universe’s mechanism. He can do no more to change the fate of the universe, than a Non-Playing Character can do to change the story-line of a Real-Time Strategy game (say, Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic, which incidentally is one of my all-time favourite games). So nothing I write here, will be of any use to anyone in the whole universe. I am a negligible non-entity.

* – Wikipedia is the best thing ever to happen to the Internet. Allow me to quote Steve Carell (The Office, Episode: The Negotiation): “Wikipedia can be edited by anyone around the world. So you know you are getting the best possible information”.
