Who am I
A writer, a photographer, a lover, I love the carnations and the rains; I love the full moon, the sea and everything in between. I am someone who has always been fascinated by the magic of words. And soon came a time in my life when I started to weave poetry of my own. I like to express myself beautifully and Swatikhatri.com is a space where I would like to explore this further.
How it started
Writing being my first love I started writing with local publications, then wrote for The Tribune as a contributing journalist for their weekly supplement. I enjoy doing new things and have done a couple of radio shows with All India Radio as an announcer. I also have a witty side to myself which comes alive through my anecdotes that have been published with Readers Digest India magazine.
