I am an IT professional having spent more than thirty years in front of all types of computers, from antique DOS to laptops and trying to learn new and newer languages that propped up everyday. But the language I loved most was English - British English, because writing had always been in my blood. However, I discovered that literary pursuit was not a lucrative career to follow (at least in India), unless you've connections in the publishing world or you've become an established writer. My writing was therefore limited to a pastime hobby. I wrote several short stories from personal experience (as you would discover from the Story Board) and got them published in various leading English magazines / newspapers in India and abroad. I was thrilled when one of my short stories "Bridging the Rainbow" was selected to be included in "The WritersNet Anthology of Prose" edited by Gary D Kessler, and published in October 2002.
