Ankur Kapoor


A moody writer who scribbles experiences, observations and anecdotes from life. An advertising professional specializing in Brand Strategy; he likes to absorb and assimilate whatever else life throws at him. He thinks his stories/ essays/ writings are more like amiable narratives of the beauty and yet absurdness of life - memoirs and odes to those split-seconds that deserve more thought, more brooding-over; just like good wine needs to be seasoned. Among his other interests are singing (on his YouTube channel), scouting pleasing music, watching ads and following football and cricket. He'd love to hear from you, feel free to give him a shout at any of the links mentioned on Smashwords.
