I was born in the early 1980s. I grew up in the small towns and remote villages of North East India. I didn't know it when I was young, but now when I look back, I believe I had and I still have mild form of autism. I had speech problem and stammered a bit. More importantly, I didn't give eye contact to others while interacting. I even preferred loneliness to socialization.
