Who is the author “behind” the book?
I was born in an elite and cultural family. Education always was a priority over other things in the environment that I grew up in. As a kid I was urged to read a lot of story books besides being taught to paint, sing and play musical instruments. Naturally, I started growing fond of all things creative. Reading was an integral part of my growing up and as I grew further, I took to writing, which was only a natural succession to reading as much as I did. I started with writing a diary. Having stayed away from my hometown and my grandfather, I used to write hand written letters to him. Then came blogs and articles in various magazines, which finally culminated in a deep desire to write a novel.
I did my graduation in Information Technology, but did not quite enjoy it. I decided to do something that will hone my creative skill and help me make a mark for myself outside the IT business. Then my grey cells made me realize that Management is my calling. Two years hence, I completed my PGDBM in Marketing from a premium B-School and got campus placed in one of the financial giants in India. I worked in Marketing and Business Strategy for almost a decade before calling it quits to take care of my daughter. While in the break, I thought what better way to utilize my time than to do what I love doing the most – writing. And the result is Beyond the Passage of Time.
