About me…

It has been a wonderful journey…. arriving nowhere and achieving nothing…

A boy who wants to become a doctor…then gives up on that and aspires to go for IAS, but then (luckily), never becomes either of these….

A young chap who decides to do his BA and MA in English Literature, …choosing not to take up an offer to go join a pilot training course.

A youth who never thought of becoming a teacher, but who becomes and remains a teacher for over two decades.

A post-graduate student, who, following a casual talk with a friend, applies for a journalism course, and eventually lands up somewhere on the fringes of mainstream film journalism …and remains there for over two decades (…but never wants to call himself a journalist either!).

A person, who, not even in the wildest of his dreams, desired to be an IT guy, but then happens to make a totally unexpected and abrupt entry into that world as well and does three short stints in the IT industry, as sub-editor, SEO content writer etc.

An aspiring writer, who gets the chance to associate with a couple of television talk shows, as the so-called “script writer” …and in the process even has to double up and help as unofficial “audience coordinator” for one of these shows…

Bits of translation work, blogging, film-reviewing etc., plus unfinished, unpublished/yet-to-be-filmed short stories, novels, scripts etc. (Plans are afoot to finish these unfinished works and even film some of those scripts …)

Officially “jobless”, and mostly at home, since June 2019 (after having quit the IT industry, not wanting to go back there) till the day this website is launched (on September 7, 2020) …

In the meantime, joins hands with a cousin, and takes to YouTube and does videos, despite having never thought of being a presenter or an interviewer in front of the camera… but now doing that as well…

That’s me, in a nutshell…

A wonderful journey… always “to fresh woods, and pastures new”…
