More about me

Born in 1972. Did my basic schooling from class 7 onwards at Modern School, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi. Where I passed out in 1990. After that I did History (Hons) from St. Stephen's College, Delhi where I earned my degree in 1993.

After this, I was involved in various activities ranging from software development and culminating in becoming a full time journalist at Delhi Mid Day. I got married in 1997 and within a couple of years moved out of India and went to Los Angeles. Our stay in Los Angeles lasted a little less than two years and then we returned to India for good, which was one of the best decisions of my life, I might add. You just can't beat living in your own country.

Shadows of Truth was first published in 1999 and then re-structured and re-published in 2008. The book is now available exclusively on and

After returning to New Delhi, I again became a full time journalist for about a year. During this time, I covered a whole range of subjects - Delhi Government, Delhi BJP, Delhi Congress, diplomatic, fashion, movies and many other 'beats'.

In 2004, I entered into formal education once again. This time I decided to pursue a degree in law. I graduated in 2007 and am now a fully qualified lawyer. However, I am not practising law. I am full time into my family business of real estate development. For that aspect of my life, you can visit the Chintels Group website here.

I am still writing in some major Indian newspapers and enjoy writing spiritual articles which have been published in The Speaking Tree (Times of India) and Inner Voice (Hindustan Times). I am working on some new book projects as well and am also considering writing non-fiction also.

I am also the Managing Director of The Chintels GroupĀ 

My wife and I have three lovely children and live in New Delhi.
