Who said that IITians are not fun?!
Pluggd.in, a major website with a million visitors a month, recently began carrying cartoons by an IIT Kharagpur (cs, 2001) graduate - Ali Baqri. Pluggd.in gave him the following introduction:
“When I first met him, I got an impression that he was a student from an Eastern country on an exchange program. The impression continued till someone managed to annoy him. Out came a torrent of specialist Hindi words which I cannot type here. However, I must admit that he was a funny character. His Hindi continues to be impeccable and his name continues to be Ali Baqri. His last name is pronounced like the Hindi word for goat with an emphasis on “a”.
Ali’s lack of interest in things academic was overcompensated by his love for things creative. After graduation he worked as a software engineer, a consultant and an investment banker. Along the way, he also threw in an MBA degree from Chicago Booth. However, he never lost his facility with humor and art. Fun is his passion.”
