Anirban Banerjee grew up in a small town in West Bengal and then grew further sideways in Kolkata. A confirmed bachelor (right until the day he got married), he is also a geek, an atheist and a Bengali who does not like rice or football. Crippling identity crises notwithstanding, he manages to keep his days occupied with books, movies and video games. Yup, even though life has done its best to drag him, kicking and screaming, towards maturity, he does not intend to give up without a spirited fight. By day, writing is both his passion and his profession, by night, he is Batman (citation needed).
