About the Author
In 2016, at twenty-three, I quit my first job with the dream of becoming a storyteller. I packed a rucksack and left Mumbai, where I worked as an Area Sales Manager, in search of my true self.
An year after my dream expedition, across India and Europe, I am back to reality with my novel, On the Open Road. I met people with extraordinary stories – the travelers, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the visionaries and the saints, who inspired me to the core and gave a new direction to my life. I felt I was meant to be a storyteller, stronger than ever.
I am currently based out of Gurugram, where I write at Starbucks and leave for the Himalayas when I struggle with the writer’s block.
I have sailed to the Andamans, camped with the Indian Jawans in Arunachal Pradesh, scuba dived in the Indian Ocean, swum with the dolphins in the Mediterranean, danced to Bollywood songs on the streets of Prague, floated free for hours on the beach in the Island of Mallorca. I wish to travel the world before I die.
Every year, I spend time in the coastal village of Palolem in Goa as I feel I belong there! A minimalist at heart, with every passing day, I find myself moving farther from the never-ending quest of owning material possessions and a step closer to owning a vast ocean of experiences.
A post-graduate in management from the prestigious B-school IMI, New Delhi and a graduate in Computer Science and Technology, I have worked with corporates like HSBC and Coffee Day Beverages. On the Open Road draws inspiration from my real-life experiences and I wish to inspire my readers to listen to their heart and follow their dreams.
