Deepanjali Pandey - With roots in Lucknow, I was born and brought up on a lush green tea estate in Assam. I studied in Mussoorie where my love for writing grew from a nascent interest to full blown passion under the direction of some wonderful boarding school teachers. Currently in Singapore, with my husband and toddler, I am still writing, still reading, still thinking in words.

Hari Kumar - The economics of life had brought me to the comfortably-not-too-distant shores of Singapore during that turbulent December of '92 (remember Babri Masjid). The pace of this city that I now call home is probably something I would not trade away. It may have been the mid life crisis or maybe this growing emptiness that has inspired me to look inwards and mine the depths of my soul. Welcome to my website at: http://www.harismind.com

 
Sunder Muthanna - It was a dark and stormy night when I was born. Strangely, it was a sunny 10 in the morning in the rest of the city. Till I was 12, I thought God reported to Walt Disney. And couldn’t understand why there were no genuine cartoon characters among my classmates. And no genuine humans among the staff. I’m now an ad and web content writer. A hard core Bangalorean who sniffs beer like a discerning wine lover and says knowingly  "Made this morning, plastic barrel, came by the flyover, got stuck in the traffic jam, AC failed on the way."

Bijaya Ghosh - I was born in West Bengal to a schoolteacher father and a housewife mother. I lost my father at an early age, which put us in great economic hardship. Unless a religious organization, Sree Sarada Ashrama had helped me at this juncture, my education would have been terminated before leaving school. At present I am giving the final touches to my ambitious first novel.  I am a professor at a Bangalore college.
 
 
Ashok Rajagopalan - I'm 42, happily married with two kids. For my daily bread, I work as a freelance illustrator, but for future jam, I write. I believe in a God of Humour, who rules over all others. I also believe in equality for all, irrespective of class, gender, intellectual accomplishments, wealth or knowing the CEO's uncle-in-law. I live in a peaceful suburb of Chennai, which allows me to breathe relatively fresh air and listen to the birds, bees and squirrels. I hate to see families break up, and if they want to be independent entities, at least book a neighbouring flats. I am proud of my humility and look down on snobs.
 
 
Sunanda Mehta - Daughter of an army officer, I traveled all over the country during my growing up years and collected a vast repository of memories, friends and experiences. The same continued when I married a merchant navy officer-only then I embarked on traveling the world aboard the ship. What  keeps me rooted to the ground now though, is my 14-year old son and his education,  my home and my job as a journalist-though the ship travels continue intermittently too. I stay in Pune, love reading, listening to music and am a complete movie buff.

Priya Rajasekar - I am a freelance writer based in Dublin, Ireland. I love the simple pleasures of life like living in a clean, peaceful atmosphere, listening to soul-stirring music, reading books that keep me in touch with the world, watching movies that are either inspiring or funny and just spending time with my kids.  I believe in the power of the written word. When I write I feel free and at peace with myself.
 
Gouri Dange - I’m Gouri Dange. I live and work in Pune, after fleeing Mumbai’s weather, traffic jams, pollution and noise seven years ago. The joke’s on me though, since that kind of describes the state of Pune now. So I’m plotting my next escape route! I write fiction (a novel, a set of short stories) as well as non-fiction – people/animal watching, Indian classical music, cuisine, travel, humour... Currently I have two weekly columns in a paper called Maharashtra Herald and one in a magazine called Man’s World.

heart. I joined the IAS in 1979 and belong to the Orissa cadre. My husband who belongs to the IA&AS and my two sons, aged 22 and 20, complete my family.At present, working as a Joint Secretary in the Government of India, I am at the Government’s beck and call from morning to night, so creativity has unfortunately taken a  back seat!
   
 
Indu Balachandran - I grew up in Bangalore, studied Economics Honours, but  spent more time writing gags for friends’ birthday cards, than writing economics assignments. A gold medal in journalism landed me a job at Deccan Herald, but the Chief Reporter politely but firmly suggested I join an ad agency, after seeing my excessive use of exaggeration. Have bungee-jumped at Bali, gone white-water-rafting in the Ganga, , danced like Zorba the Greek in Crete, stood speechless inside the Pyramid at Egypt, --and am looking for the next big adventure!
