Say hello to Tuku!

"Tuku is an Indian Pariah, 3-4 months old. He is a rescue but that seems funny given he seems to be the one practically rescuing me.


Picture of Tuku lying down on the floor and looking up at the camera.

Since March 2020 when I started working from home, a paper of mine got rejected by 4 journals, 3 of my visiting research fellowship applications fell through and I wasn’t able to see/visit my boyfriend for more than a year.


But after I brought Tuku home, he really makes me smile at the end of long and tiring and monotonous days - that is, obviously when he is not busy biting off t-shirts/rugs/walls."
