Remember that peppy Kishore Kumar song “… jaate thhey Japan, pahunch gaye Cheen, samajh gaye na?” That’s me – like hundreds of thousands of people from around the world who find themselves in professions they didn’t study for or didn’t intend to be in.

It’s not as if my entry into the field of editing was entirely accidental. Far from it. I was writing and editing in school, in university, and even in a job with an international educational organization. Editing came naturally to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So, when I wanted to make productive use of a couple of months of free time between a gruelling exam and the declaration of the result, I snapped up a writing and editing job. The result came. I failed. The job – a filler until then – became my mainstay. After a few years of working full time, I decided to go independent and concentrate solely on editing. That’s how worddelights.com came into being.

For a very long time, I had the desire to put together my travel experiences, which have been many, in the form of a book. Several things held me back, laziness topping the list. But in the last month of the last decade, I managed to put together a small tragicomic memoir of my major travel mishaps over the years. The book is available for purchase on Amazon (click on the book cover in the sidebar). Now that I have set the ball rolling, I am onto my next project – my first novel, which is at the intersection of sci-fi, fantasy and mythology. I also blog about my travel adventures at Like a Bird. On other sundry topics, ranging from politics and society to environment and food, I blog at Contemplation.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you.
