I developed a passion for writing when I was seven years old. However, I had forgotten that aspiration as my parents helped me to get involved in other interests. At seventeen, I wanted to be a great musical artist. At eighteen, I became Sri Chinmoy’s ardent disciple as part of my journey to find peace and true happiness through self-improvement and meditation. I developed a strong interest to become an actor. Then pursued a career in graphic design. Then web development and computer programming. Finally, I renewed my interest in writing, and I have been working on my multi-volume memoir, The Struggle Within, for the past nine years.
