Hello all. My name isn't really Nick, but that is my nickname since school and so I'll just go along with that for now.
I live in Chennai and I've been an atheist since I was 14. Nine years on, I find that is the most liberating decision I have made and it set me on a path of self discovery and inquiry and helped me understand the world through reason and understanding as opposed to blind faith and dogma.
As an ex-Hindu, this wasn't a particularly difficult or dangerous thing to do and my parents are supportive, though not very. I hope to have good, intelligent discussions with all the lovely free-thinkers,agnostics and skeptics here and I'm glad to have met your acquaintance.
Cheers,
Nick.

I'm not on Facebook anymore, but thanks for pointing that out.

There are few others from Chennai here. Perhaps if you said hello over at the Chennai forum, you can get to know some of them and stay in the loop about any local freethought events and meetings that may be planned.
