Thou’ | about the author

Welcome, dear traveler, to my humble abode in the vast expanse of the web. I am Ajmal, a fervent individual hailing from the tropical paradise of Kerala in southern India, currently residing in the United Arab Emirates for work. As a mechanical design engineer, I focus on the engineering design and technical development of products used in infrastructure, offshore systems, and construction. My Arabic name translates to “delight” and “beauty”, befitting my passions for inspiring stories, visual arts, illustrations, photography, science, technology, travel memories, genuine people, and a generally positive attitude.

Inspired by the Japanese art form of Kintsugi, which seeks to rediscover beauty in broken or old objects, “The Border of a Mind” represents a revival of my old writing pursuits and my passion for writing, art, visuals, and moving images. It is a personal collection of my reflections, free from the prosaic nature of online writing or the novelty of a personal blog. This is a journey of self-discovery, a deeper exploration of my true self, which I like to think of as my “Wonder Crate”. Thank you for taking the time to visit my corner of the web. I hope you find something interesting to peruse. Do not hesitate to reach out to me. May blessings be upon you.

With love, Ajmal
