I was born and brought up in a little village in India. My childhood was enriched by lots of fascinating stories, both real and fiction, told by my great grandmother, my mum and aunty. Later, I moved to the UK to do my PhD in Meteorology at the University of Reading. It was when I had my daughter, and I started reading books to her and encouraged her to do creative writing, that I discovered my own desire to pen down my thoughts. This is my first collection of such scribbles.
