Brought up in the hills of Shillong in India, a student of St Edmund's School and College, I became an engineer in Electronics & Communication from NIT Calicut.
Driven with an intense desire to know and understand the subtle nuances of life, I love travelling, exploring the unknown, harboring new experiences every day and yet trying to let go and move on. Currently, an IAS (Indian Administrative Service) officer working in the government, my passion has always been in writing.
A published poet, I was awarded by The Poetry Society (India) and after completing a course in screenwriting from Mumbai, my latest passion now lies in screenplay writing. Till date, I have written many shorts and few full length features which though unproduced have been critically acclaimed and well recognized in couple of international film festivals recently. I wish to use this forum primarily to showcase few of my short and full length feature screenplays in the unproduced category.
