Bienvenue, Wilkommen, Saludo and Greetings:
This site is mostly in English. It covers about forty years, using a free WordPress template from 2012. I pay for the dot-org myself and it is completely non-commercial.
This site’s best viewed on a computer, laptop or pad. Unfortunately, the least effective way is the mobile version, where all the menus and categorizations are unavailable for immediate view. Still, on the mobile version you can hit the “full site” option, or use the menus or categories or search terms.
I’ve never been on F*cebook. FB has done more to steal people’s creativity and individuality and their ability to think for themselves than any invention in history. I never wanted them to own my content, so instead, I stuck to blogging. But please, feel free to share anything you find here on FB and advance the content.
I joined Twitter on the 4th of April 2011 and left Twitter on 4th of April 2021. The ten years I spent there can be found @mtksfbay. Again, please, feel free to share anything you find on Twitter and advance the content. By sharing it from here, at least it’s tagged with my handle.
I continue to use my Youtube channel @MTKarthik but other than that, I can’t be found on social media. There should be no ads here and what you find here are all original thoughts, art and writing, made from without that world. I ended this blog in 2017, but restarted it just for the year of 2022 in reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This blog has had a few thousand readers. I thank each and every one of you. Occasionally looking at stats and seeing you exist has meant more to me than you can possibly know. As a writer and artist this has been a safe venue to express freely, unburdened by political or commercial demands or the need to satisfy the “social media” construct – entertainment content.
After a hiatus of many years, I hope to publish long form writing and produce large scale art again. I am 55 years old now, remain generally unknown and continue to produce content that follows the methodologies and ideation you can find here: pacifism, internationalism, syncretism, and transcendentalism remain at the heart of what I do.
Hope I run into you someday and we can collaborate to help this world. Til then, good bye and good luck.
