I have spent quite some time in pursuit of academic excellence, culminating in a doctorate in English Literature. Of all well-known litterateurs, I chose Thomas Eliot, one of the most difficult poets to comprehend, and tried to demystify the religious side of his eventful life. However, instead of pursuing a teaching career, I took to print media journalism. After two decades of working in different newspapers, I have moved into free-lancing for newspapers and magazines, writing books for institutions and educational publications and directing films. At present, I work for LANCO Group, a Hyderabad-based Business House, taking care of its communication requirements.
