Here’s more about the author in his own words:
“Hello there! Thanks for stopping by!
For those of you who don’t know me, I was born in the tiny, oil-rich country of Kuwait, second child to working-class immigrant Indian parents – a machine operator at a steel plant, and a nurse, in the early 1980s.
At the age of 9, I took flight along with my parents, two siblings and a few bags of old clothes and trinkets, when a certain infamous Iraqi dictator-president (who was later hanged for his war crimes), bombed and invaded the country I lived in. After an adventurous trip in which I recount living in a refugee camp for three weeks in the middle of a scorching desert called no-man’s-land (somewhere between Jordan and Iraq), sleeping in canvas tents and standing in long queues outside the Red Cross trucks that came everyday to distribute rations, I eventually returned to my native village in South India.
In the years since then, I have survived the after-effects of a major leg surgery, defying the future predictions of my orthopaedic surgeon who then said I’d never be able to walk like normal kids again, completed high school and later graduated with an Engineering degree from a college, known better then for the enviable street fighting skills of its students rather than its academic prowess.
Between 2005 and 2014, I worked for a software company and travelled to and worked in half a dozen countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. In between, I also managed to complete a Master’s Degree in business administration and earned my first few pennies as a writer ghost-writing academic articles for University students (this was at a time when I was unemployed and holding an almost empty bank account).
I now toggle my life between my project managent day job and answering my true calling of a writer. Well, all of us need to start somewhere!
I am also a music enthusiast and play the acoustic guitar and the harmonica (when in the right mood) and I’m also a keen student and participant in stock markets (which I have been involved in since 2007) and in more recent times, the burgeoning crypto-currency market.
