Thanks for visiting my page I am an Engineer, working as a bureaucrat. So, shouldn’t I be concentrating in my work? Oh well, that I anyways do! I love every bit of my work! I am an Engineer by choice and I have really struggled to be where I am. Then, how did the bug of writing bite me? Well, it all started with the arrival of my daughter, Simran. After having given birth to her, I wanted her to understand this world through the tales which I would weave around for her. Some of the stories would be moralistic, some would be mysteries and others would be motivational. Her desire to listen to my stories would be so intense that slowly I began to feel that I have a good imaginative brain. So, the credit of making me a story-teller goes to Simran! I would also be scribbling poems since my childhood. In 2010, I took part in a poetry contest organized by American Embassy and Arushi in which Gulzar sahib was the judge. I won II prize in that contest. Receiving an award from the one and only one Gulzar sahib and hearing him render my poem took me to a new high and raised my confidence levels. Slowly, I began to drift as a stream. The gates had been opened. I realized that I can’t stop and went with the flow. I have written in many genres including that for children and teenagers, poetry, short story and novels. I am a bilingual writer, writing in English as well as Hindi. I have even tried writing in Marathi and one of my Marathi poems is on my website. I suppose, the biggest factor which kept me going was the wonderful response I received from my readers. It is to you all that I owe my being named as one of the 78 most popular writers by Forbes in 2014. I do love to receive feedback.
