Kalpanik S. is an immigrant technologist. He came to the USA on a fellowship from the University of California in late eighties to study and do research in Computer Science. After completing his Graduate studies, Kalpanik worked at both large technology companies and small start-ups in West Coast's High Tech corridor - Silicon Valley, Seattle, and Southern California. He had been writing a journal about his "journey'" through the US pretty much from the time he landed at the San Francisco Airport more than twenty years ago, and he finally decided to get it published. Kalpanik (pronounced as Kaalp-Nik) means "imaginary" in Hindi. Author decided to use a pen name to allow him to separate his literary identity from his professional identity. Kalpanik is also a great observer, not only he is able to point to the uniqueness, oddity and eccentricity of places, people and culture, he cleverly stretches it for a comic effect, making us crack up page after page. However, even though his writing has great splashes of humor, it is also very thoughtful. Also, many of the plots, incidents and characters have a layer of a second meaning, delighting his readers when they figure out the cleverly hidden message, or the unexpected punchline, making his books cater to the needs of both the readers who are looking for something light and refreshing, and those who want something more sophisticated.
