I was in first grade when I won prize in drawing competition and I was in eighth grade when I won second prize in essay writing competition in my school. That’s it, other than these I have never won any prize in any competition throughout my academic life. From school till MBA I have never won any prize. When I won for essay writing competition my English teacher called me to staff room and she asked me where you found inspiration to write. I didn’t know what to say. She said you can write. I was so elated that I decided that I can write for newspaper. I used to send lot of hand written articles to Dainik Bhaskar, Amar Ujala, Times of India, and Hindustan Times. After two years of my struggle I was successful to get my write up published in “Madhurima”(Wednesday supplement) of Dainik Bhaskar. I should have that copy somewhere in my closet. I sent various articles to TOI and I use to call their office every single day to check on status and with HT I did the craziest thing of all time (I think I need to write a separate post for that). You know how crazy I was and still I am. 

Then I got busy with graduation. I started a blog in 2009 but didn’t continue for long and left there. That blog is also there, somewhere on blogger. Google is kind enough not to delete that. I use it sometimes as test blog (weird me). Then I got job which any MBA graduate dreams of and got busy in corporate world. I tried to write in between but was not passionate. It was last year in October when I started having this feeling that starts writing again. So here I am with R&W. For me writing is like meditation.

What I have learnt over the years is that sometimes we get really busy in fake glow of world. We should sometimes take a break from life and listen to our heart. So my journey has just begin.
