I am : An Electrical Engineer, a voracious reader and a diligent student of Bharatanatyam

Presently biding my time : Designing Electrical Systems for Buildings; ensuring that neither the transformers spark nor the cables fail

As I secretly follow my dreams of : Writing stories leave an impression on the reader – stories that linger on yet leave the reader wanting for more.

Part of the : Creative Writing Mentorship Program from June 30 to September 15, 2018

About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program

Anita taught us the importance of honest writing, the need to explore the character’s inner selves, and the beauty of narrating them in finely chiselled lines – to lift our writing above the ordinary. In her, I found a mentor who painstakingly reviewed my work and helped identify the flaws in my writing. At the attic, I flocked with birds who shared a penchant for good literature and encouraged each other to keep up the writing momentum. During weekends, I would commute from Chennai to attend the classes. However, my efforts proved worthy, when somewhere down the road, I realised that I had developed an intense bond with the art of writing.

As Sylvia Plath said, “Let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences.”
