Hello Brown Pundits

Omar invited me to contribute to BP. I am Naveen Kumar, a semi-urban self-employed youth of North-West India, was raised in Haryana and few years back graduated from IIT-Kharagpur in Aerospace Engineering.  

I come from Bishnoi community and a highly politicised extended family.

Our culture is a mixed Punjabi-Haryanavi-Rajasthani one. Before 1947, the clan was spread across both sides of what is now Radcliffe line (Punjab-Rajasthan junction). Presently, most of our people settled in 2 districts at Indo-Pak border: Firozpur in Punjab and Ganganagar in Rajasthan. 

From Indian polity, history, geography, technology, society and statecraft; I’ll be posting on varied subjects (mainly focussed on India and broader South Asian region).


PS: If this mishmash of an intro, doesn't make any sense, happy to help :)
