I have been writing since my teenage days. The Second Choice is my debut novel. It is available in both paperback and in ebook formats. Prior to this, many of my short stories, articles and children's stories have been published.

Apart from writing and reading, I also enjoy travel and explore new places, as and when time permits.

Presently, I'm engaged in writing my second novel. I love meeting other writers and getting connected.

All my book details are here on this blog. http://indusww.wordpress.com. When you find time please browse through it.

“Misunderstanding is one of the worst of ill feelings which can spoil many lives.”
Lakshmi Menon

“When you’re angry you act according to your emotions, not with your mind.”
Lakshmi Menon

“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”
Ernest Hemingway

“It’s a very funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.”
W. Somerset Maugham

“I mused for a few moments on the question of which was worse, to lead a life so boring that you are easily enchanted, or a life so full of stimulus that you are easily bored.”
Bill Bryson, The Lost Continent

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

“for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
