Author.
Believer when it comes to the miracle of words and the rain.
Loves reading, listening to podcasts and gazing at monsoon clouds. Her taste in books is eclectic ranging from anthropology to old fashioned murder mysteries, and if pushed she would name Jane Austen as her favorite author for her believable, eternal characters.
Her voice reflects her thirst for knowledge, quest for balance and her appreciation of nuance. Her books are really opinions masquerading as novels.
Radhika believes in a spiritual approach to life that embraces science.
Personal responsibility and fair play are important to her.

Why do you want to write, and what do you want to write. The answer to these questions would automatically make it easier to answer the how. Writing to get this story off my chest, writing to become world famous, writing to launch some other business or career - all these would require different approaches. Similarly writing a historical romance would demand a different set of techniques in comparison to say writing a story about a mentally ill, abused woman in an institution.

There are many excellent books on the mechanics of writing. Above and beyond those, the other two basic questions are very personal and worth knowing an answer to.(less)

Thank you for your question.

There was no specific event or experience that I can recall that made me a writer. I have always enjoyed the written word. My writing grew gradually from that joy.

It was relatively easy to write short stories and to blog - there was no long-term commitment required after all. At one point I decided to try writing a novel. To sustain the habit, I chose themes and stories that wouldn't drain me. It was difficult in the beginning but after a while, I found my rhythm. (less)
