Sunil Nair, currently in exile in Bengaluru, was born, brough up and educated (sort of) in Mumbai. For over two decades, he has haunted the newsrooms of several media outlets including the Indian Express, Business Standard, the Economic Times, Sunday Observer, and most recently, Reuters. His interests include history, heritage and conservation, true crime, international affairs and defense. An inveterate curio junkie, he collects rare books, vintage comics, toys, miniature cannon, military medals, badges and railwayana, among other things. When not editing copy for a living, he fills his days lounging on the sofa and cribbing about life in Bengaluru.
