Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.
My father was serving Indian Defense, due to which my initial education has taken place in South-Indian states in Kendriya Vidyalayas, CBSE Board. Major part of my schooling took place in Mumbai. When I stepped in College life, I chosen the professional technical course Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) from SNDT Women’s university based out at Mumbai. I completed my post-graduation as Masters of Science in Computer Application from Symbiosis International University, Pune. This gave me the direction to become a software engineer. After Marriage and Pregnancy, I chose to swap my career option to prosper my family responsibilities. I completed two more professional bachelor degree courses, one in Library Science (BLIS) and another as Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) from University of Mumbai, This way, today I am having three professional Bachelor’s Degree. I love to upgrade myself, and thus I always keep my studies on.
How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write?
Literature has always drawn my attention since childhood. In childhood, I was a very shy kind of person. I started to write mini poems since I was eight. And my only audience who was allowed to read them was my Mom. Whether it is English Literature or Hindi Sahitya, they are my favorite past times and I love to spend most of my time into reading something. I mostly prefer mythology.
I give credit to my friend Mr. Atul Singh, who was the only writer in my big friend circle. What inspired me from him was that being mechanical cum marine engineer he used to write moral punchlines and poetries over Facebook. Somewhere, I felt after seeing his posts, even I should also try it. I appreciate that he came up putting them on Facebook, as I found this helpful to publish my own written posts over my shy nature.
My interest in mythology and practice of Krishna Consciousness has made me to put up my first ever-Hindi version of poem over Krishna. I shared in on Facebook, and I got good comments from my friends. This pushed me more in writing, after some time, I found myself expressing my feelings mostly in form of some poetries. Whatever I write comes from a chapter of my life.
