I am a 44-year-old socially conscious, progressive minded and positive-thinking person from Anchal in Kollam District, presently living in Kochi, Kerala, India. I am physically challenged by infantile post polio paralysis of both lower limbs. I did my graduation in commerce and worked as a clerk, for around 12 years under the Civil Judicial Department of the State Government of Kerala. As part of my social work, I had also volunteered with an NGO, Baba Amte’s Anandwan in Maharashtra, for over 3 years.
In 2009, I gave up my government job mainly with a view to devote more time to social
service and creative writing, two of my primary interests. My debut novel, THE GREAT
INDIAN FIRE which deals mainly with ‘Corruption’ and ‘Atrocities against Women’ was published by Leadstart Publishing, Mumbai. INSIDE A SANCTUARY OF LOVE is a fiction by me in Kindle, Amazon. The novel deals with corruption and mismanagement within certain outwardly great NGOs of India.
