WRITER: Strong background in Cinema, TV, Publishing and Theater.
I am a Storyteller, a writer of fiction. Besides a Post Graduate degree in Mass Communication & Film Production from IIMC, a premier institute in New Delhi, India, I have dabbled in many formats of writing over the last 12 years, thus acquiring a varied range of experience in craft and content.
My early experience with major publishing houses in India gave me a solid grounding in writing for young adults as well as children. I have published a few children's books and translated several.
My two-season stint with Sesame Street-India version, as a Senior Writer, gave me a huge window to showcase my skills and enhance them. It is during this time that I got a chance to work with some of India's prominent Animators.
In the last few years I found the opportunity to write scripts and lyrics for Bollywood films, and have successfully assisted in the direction of a Hindi film named 'Maximum'. The experience not only honed my technical skills but gave me an amazing platform to experiment with and to push my limits.
I have written/directed a few stage and street plays and won accolades for the same. I possess a flair for narrating stories. I have also had the privilege to be trained by some eminent Theater professionals.
A strong command over both English and Hindi languages, and an integral sense of craft is what I offer. Projects that are radical both in philosophy and in format are very welcome. I have a strong inclination towards drama, folklore and fantasy and look forward to write/edit short stories, novellas, plays or any other kind of interesting features.
