I am a graduate in Psychology and English Literature and a trained teacher. I have taught in one of Delhi's top schools. I have been writing for 17 years now and have 96 published pieces in various national news papers. I also did a weekly humour column for a news paper for over a year.
I started publishing by sending my articles by post. I have published in 'The Times of India', 'The Indian Express', 'The Pioneer' and 'National Mail'.
I am a mother of two grown up very successful young doctors. I started wiriting after my boys left home and went to medical school. I enjoy writing and when my first piece got picked up by 'The Times of India' I started writing as a hobby. But now, over the years,I have become more focused . The acceptance rate of my writings has been 99%.
I have published 3 books since April 03, 'The 10 Rules of Success'(in its 8th print and a Rupa all-time bestseller),'The 10 Rules of Happiness' and 'Be Positive, Think Positive'. All with 'Rupa & Co'and all are best sellers. My books are practical, straightforward and principle-centered guides to a meaningful and successful life lived with integrity, honesty and peace of mind. I have also translated my first two books in Hindi and the 'Success' book has been translated in Nepali as well.
I am now writing my 4th self-help book (dealing with stress in everyday life) and hope to complete it soon.
