I’m Mukunth, a science writer and editor in India.

I’ve set up this blog to share my notes on science, science communication and skepticism in India. I also write about the national media landscape from time to time.

My principal professional accomplishment to date is that I was a member of the founding team of The Wire, India, and am currently its science editor.

I believe there’s value in knowing what’s really, actually wrong with the world, why we consider them to be wrong, and pursuing truths to that end.

If you want to reach me – my email is available on The Wire Science homepage, and I’m on Twitter as @1amnerd. Comments are disabled here.

A nonorientable surface is one on which you can move around in a way such that when you get back to your starting point, you can look like your mirror image.
