Namaste, I am Shabda Raaj.

I write and sell software for fun and profit.


I have been reading books for as log as I remember. Some of the books I love are LOTR, ASOIAF, Foundation Saga, Dune series, Discworld. I like books with vast, expansive worlds and gray characters. I also love hard science fiction.


I like Asimov for his prolificity, I like Martin for introducing realism to fantasy and I like Pratchett for his skill with words.


I am inspired by Banksy, and I think (some) games are art.
