Born in India, studied in St. Xavier's Collegiate School in Calcutta. Taught English in the city of my birth before moving to Mumbai and finally settling in the UK. I have been writing for a number of years but never really got my works in print. I was influenced by my father who was an avid reader of poetry. I had taught in St. Paul's Mission School, Calcutta and St. Peter's School, Mumbai. Teaching is my passion and I enjoyed my job.
