VP lives in the SF bay area. He is an ex physicist who currently peddles his quant skills in the financial services industry. He is an inveterate news junkie and argumentative Indian who has now lived in the US for nearly two decades. He so fancies his neutrality that he named his blog Neutral Observer.
He is not much of a writer and even less of a photographer, as his wife has had occasion to remind him. He adores his two kids, who don't seem to mind him.
VP hasn't had anything published by anyone, if you don't count technical papers. The only reason he has been invited to write here is that he happens to know Namit.
