Haider is a Pakistani. An undergraduate. At Yale. All these things baffle him. He spends most of his time trying to cope with his bafflement at these and other things. He copes with it by talking to things and people around him and taking various colorful intoxicants. When sane, Haider enjoys South Asian History, English Literature and Film because they allow him to read a lot of books, watch a lot of movies and then act painfully pretentious about them. He, also, tries very hard not to eat cute furry animals and his dream is to obliterate their suffering. That is not his only dream though. Since having spent two years in the countryside in Wales he wants to live atop a mountain with lots of sheep and secretly wants his cottage to become a pilgrimage site after he dies.
