It gave me an opportunity to know different kind of culture and people. I have been close in observing people behaviour, feelings from childhood but that doesn't mean would have studied Psychology, I have been studying Science in School, Engineering in College and now working for a multi national compnay while keep the light of writing in my inner soul alive and serve the mankind to learn and grow from my writing. If my work inspires someone, makes you smile, makes you 'feel', my goal is achieved.
