Jerry Pinto

Poet, Author, Translator, India

Jerry is an author who lives and works in Mumbai and finds it increasingly tedious to sum himself up in a hundred words. However, he keeps trying. He often wonders who reads these blasted paragraphs and wonders whether it is worth their while. Was it worth yours, dear reader? Almost everything you need to know was packed into the first nine words. The rest was the bumfluff that middle-aged men produce on days of dyspepsia and formalities.
