About Me

I’m a reader. And a writer, too. Besides managing this website and writing articles and book reviews on an array of websites, I work as a research writer in an IT research and advisory firm. I live in Delhi.

Follow my Instagram account (@writerly_life) for regular updates: what I am reading, brief book reviews and book recommendations.
