From one Speck to all the others...

After almost 20 years, I’m giving writing another shot. It has always been my dream to be a writer, of course winning the Nobel prize for Literature and every other prize in writing simultaneously, features vividly in many episodes, but I’d be happy to just have a few friends read and join the conversation with me.

Having studied literature and journalism in college, competed in local and national writing competitions in India (and sometimes winning) and continuing to devour books like they were on the brink of being snatched away, that would seem like an easy and natural transition. Not so much….my days so far have been occupied with treading a well-worn path: college, a corporate career, moving countries etc. etc…. and writing of any kind was limited to (in fact was preferred to be in) bullet points, PowerPoint presentations and of course way too many signatures.

Call it a mid-life crisis, or just an inspired choice but I finally decided to make the time to focus on some of my pass…
