I genuinely believe that no matter what the age, there will always be a little bit of writing left in me.
Writing my way through life, I am a Post Graduate in Human Resource Management and have a professional experience of nearly 15 years.
A recruiter by profession and a writer by passion I have been writing since the age of eight. Books have been an integral part of my growing up and not only I am a voracious reader but also a book hoarder. A little uncomfortable with technology I prefer the good old paperbacks or hardcovers.
My story, Father’s Reading Glasses was published by Penguin Random House as a part of the anthology “Something Happened on the Way to Heaven” edited by Mrs Sudha Murty. This was the first of my writing accomplishments and it set my track to take this skill more seriously. Some of my work has also been published by 101words.org. I also found a place in the top ten writers for Write India Contest organised by Times of India judged by Ravinder Singh
Growing up in a place like Dehradun and being a mountain girl nature has always influenced my verses – Fiction or Non Fiction. Plus the extensive influence of books by Ruskin Bond (my favourite author) leaves a mark on everything I write.
As a writer it is interesting to observe the common people we meet on a day to day basis and adding a twist to their idiosyncrasies. Reading and writing stories for children are a stress buster and helps me keep the child inside active.
I recently completed a course in Creative Writing to hone my skill and learn more contemporary forms of writing because whether people agree or not, writing is serious business.
And like all writers, I believe I write for myself but I am not ashamed to say I seek readers.
