my perception of things is a phantom approximation. this is especially the case with people. the more and more i know somebody, the more and more my approximation of who i think they are is, personality and appearance. the closest approximation is my family and closest friends. and i wonder what the end of the extrapolation is. is it myself?

but even for oneself. my perception of myself is an approximation as well.

i am not roopam garg, but i am the best approximation of him.
