My Story

Since I was a child, I had this unscratchable itch of doing something unique!! I used to think myself as someone special, someone with lots of talent & promise!!

And then life through its systematic ways, made me realize that I am no one in the bigger scheme of things, a mere pawn!! It crushed me whenever I wanted to succeed, aspired to become something, desired something, made me humble, numbed my ego, crushed my attitude, but thankfully allowed me to retain that itch!!

The itch of making your family and yourself proud, the itch of becoming something more than ordinary, the itch of making sure that your name lives on once you are gone!!

Since I left studies, for a long time I have had an identity crisis, for I never could identify with the day worker that was well...just uninspiring!! I always knew it had to be something else in life...that life is meant to be an adventure...a celebration of special moments, a kaleidoscope of different achievements....

I learnt tennis, read books, binged on movies and sitcoms like any other person out there, but the satisfaction of achieving elation eluded me. I knew it had to be writing...even as I write this to be part of my website, I feel it all comes naturally to me, as if god wanted me to do this, as if all things in my life were slowly but surely leading me to my one love of life!!!

But it is never easy, is it? I faced a lot of rejections like most of the authors do. Family support keeps you floating, but it’s a lonesome are all alone, with your words and your thoughts...But I realized soon that I have the strength....strength to do the thing that will satisfy the itch in a manner that it will always grow...asking for more...more thoughts...more words...more books...more life!!!
