My history: I was born in Calcutta and educated in USA. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with an MA in English in 1993. While at college and later on at university, I published short stories in literary magazines. My first novella, River Dolphins, was published in 2015.

I have also worked as a Business English teacher, having founded my own school in Germany and was in the board of directors of MathFinance for over 10 years, being responsible for management and organisation of conferences and training.

My present: I am a gardener , writer and a regular practitioner of yoga. I also create colour moods on big canvases, walls and floors.

I am now a flower farmer entrepreneur in the south of France, growing organic, natural and seasonal flowers. I also write a regular blog which integrates the practices of yoga with gardening and provides a holistic approach to life. I am currently writing two novels.
