I am Sitharaam Jayakumar and my friends call me Jai. I am an information technology professional having worked in the IT field for the past twenty-seven years. My foray into writing had an interesting beginning. A year and a half back we had the founding day function of the organization I work in. One of my friends suggested that I present a poem as part of the function. Frankly, I was slightly taken aback as I had never tried writing before.

The only writing I had ever done before was an independence day speech in my fifth grade and essays as part of my academic curriculum. Well to cut a long story short, I decided to give it a go just for the heck of it. I wrote a poem inspired by my mischievous twelve-year-old daughter. The poem was a bi

I discovered that the problem was that I was trying to think too far ahead into the book. I was trying to think of the tenth chapter while I was still writing the fifth. I was trying to work out things in my head beforehand. The minute I quit doing this and started taking smaller steps, the blocks automatically disappeared and I was able to move towards the completion of my book.(less)

But for me, the greatest gain has been the soothing effect writing has on my nerves. I am an IT professional and have a heavy work schedule. When I have time to spare, it is extremely relaxing to sit back and let my pen flow as it pleases. Most of the articles and poems in my blog have been written when I have sat with my laptop in front of me and let my fingers wander over the keyboard.(less)
