Uberdesi.com is defaced everyday thanks to our contributors. We came from different parts of the South Asia to a particular nondescript location in the Northern Hemisphere.
Our first guest blogger turned regular, Anantha is NOT a Schumacher supporter, a Mallu from Madras, A Mercedes Benz AMG fan and an ardent supporter of the McLarenF1 team. On the other hand we share a passion for Tamil films, Formula1, blogging and South Indian food.
Not to mention the fact that he carries the tag of Superman and yet heâ€™s scared of horror movies. A regular Regis Philbin when quizzing people but does not hand out a million bucks and his vocal talents in the shower exceed that of UberDesi favorite Sanjaya Malakar.
Known to his regular readers as aNTi, he is a lot of what we are not and that is exactly what we want.
All over India I was raised
In the principal’s office where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of teachers said were up in no good
Started making me write a C program in my blackburd
I got in one little contest and my mom got scared
And said youre moving for your education to bel-air. (Florida acctually)

Greeting! What are you doing? What am I doing? Blogging. Cant you see you stupid person? Now I will proceed to tell you about myself. I was born in Chennai (formerly Madras). I grow up (but not really tall) in Mumbai (formerly Bombay). All this cities changing name confused me. I studied at prestigious school, junior college, Engineering college and US University. That makes me quadraple threat.
I now live in Florida which has temperature like Chennai and Mumbai but sometimes a little bit colder like Delhi. I can see how you find that confusing. In my spare time I like to watch sexy songs on SunTV. I like to consume copious amounts of beer and Old Monk Rum. I think Snoop Dogg is really really cool, fo shizzle. I speak Hindi and English and Tamil and Marathi also. My dream is to one day shave my head and sit in a dark smoke filled room full of cronies who will laugh at my bad jokes while I stare at a globe stroking a furry white cat all the while.

An Environmental Health student, she has been sharing her thoughts online from 2004 and is a regular contributor over at DesiPundit. Engaged to another blogger and a regular reader of UD, Ash is a cautious lover of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and an avid reader (of books, something we here at UD do not do)
Juggling school, work, a beautifully decorated apartment (and you thought we do not do our homework) and blogging, she managed to find time to write a great piece for tehelka.com about leaving home and coming to the promised land for her grad school.
He has spent a considerable amount of time in the Outback where he reacquainted himself with Cricket, but fret not, he will be talking about all things Desi, just like the rest of the ÜD gang.
He might even throw in a few tips on how Desi’s should work out to achieve maximum muscle tone in minimum time. Ask nicely and your wish might be granted.
Our first female guest blogger is a boat load of fun. A self-confessed geeky graduate student who is outspoken. If the “she is like so many of the other Indian grad students I have met” thought is running through your head, stop and think again.
She loves beer and college football. She hates gossip magazine and has switched schools faster than anyone you and I have ever known. She is directionally challenged and to top this all off, she loves the Australian cricket team.
The resident Lankan blogger who is always looking to answer the question of love. Besides this his major areas of interest are food, cricket and his motherland.
Stay tuned, as we will be inviting more guest bloggers.
