Arka Basu is a literature student with a flair for experimental poetry. He has an obsession with all things ancient and wishes to invent a time machine to go back to the Elizabethan era in hopes of finding a patron. He hates cats and will do anything to eradicate the species quickly. This is largely attributed to the fact that a certain telly show he was rather fond of in which 'Kats' were portrayed in positive light never made it to season 3. He is also a profound Marxist. Now he will shut up.
