Hi! I’m Karthik. ‘Beast of Traal’ is a conversation starter. And the fact that you clicked on this link and are in this page perhaps says that it worked… digitally!

My blog is called ‘Beast of Traal’ given my interest in Douglas Adams and his book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Almost all my online footprint is based on something to do with Douglas Adams.

Like, this blog’s name. The full name of the beast is Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the most definitive guide of our times.

My Twitter handle is @beastoftraal.

My other music-related website is milliblog.com, a homage to Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, a five-star restaurant situated at the end of time and matter, according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The Twitter handle related to that website is @milliblog, obviously.

I run another Twitter handle, called @NoWordYet, a conceptually obtuse homage to Douglas Adams’ incredible book, The Meaning of Liff.

Even my email ID is an obscure homage to Adams! It’s 6times9@gmail.com! Curious to know why? Here goes!
