Hi. I'm Upamanyu Mallik and I live in [[New Delhi]], [[India]]. I'm 14 yrs old. I recently joined wikitravel and I think it's a great online travel guide. My mom and dad say that the articles are swell and that the star articles beat Lonely Planet any day!!
  
==Things I like to ponder over....==
+
So three cheers for wikitravel !!!
  
*Why the heck does Dhoni not believe in using spinners as an attacking option (if you don't follow cricket, you won't follow a word)
+
Babel-related note: I also manage basic Sanskrit.
*If French fries aren't really French (but Belgian), why on earth are they known as French fries (I never knew this till I read Asterix in Begium!)
+
*Why do Americans call their weird helmet-bashing sport ''football'', so aptly described in Man, Woman and Child as ''the bashing of empty skulls''
