I am an enigneer/scientist by proffesion and an aspiring writer at heart. My education has been primarily in the STEM fields, but I have pursued 'the arts' defiantly throughout my life and will continue to do so forever. I currently blog for the Huffington Post and have published stories in literary journals in the US and in India. My first book - a collection of short stories titled 'Under the Seventh Tree' is currently in process of publication. My joining of Readomania is quite recent, but so happy to be in honorable mention for 'to be continued' contest for 'In Search of Peace' and among the winners for 'Stree' for 'Anjali Chakraborty' - thank you Readomania team, readers and wonderful editors. Looking forward to being a reader and a contributor to this wonderful site.
