Things Soumik Roy Likes

  1. A cup of black coffee, roasted at home and freshly ground
  2. The look in people’s eyes when I simplify tech-speak for them
  3. Videos of babies eating a slice of lime or just smiling away foolishly
  4. The feel of warm, freshly-pressed clothes on my body, on a cold day
  5. A platter of cheese and cold cuts and a bottle of chardonnay at 3 AM
  6. The lingering smell at printing presses and gas stations
  7. Live music on the streets, no matter what country, genre or language
  8. Watching the sun rise or set from a really tall skyscraper overlooking the city
  9. Following a recipe for something I’ve never tasted before
  10. Writing letters and poems that I will never have to share with the world
Soumik Roy roasts and brews his own coffee when he isn’t writing.
