I hold a Bachelors degree in English literature and more importantly, hold very dear the companionship the language has provided me. Coming from a family of avid readers, somewhere while growing up, I unconsciously picked up the habit of reading. It opened the doors to a new and beautiful world.
For a great part of my adult life, I have been a homemaker. Whenever time permitted I indulged in writing and teaching.
I have always lived by the dictum of Milton-They also serve who only stand and wait. My wait was finally rewarded. A few years back I got the opportunity to equip myself to be a special educator. I spend a good part of my time assessing and remediating children with learning difficulties.
At this present juncture in life, a beautiful opportunity has come knocking on my door. I am looking forward to traversing the road to my Sangam with the young and dynamic team of RTS.

Art is a poem you write on canvas with different colors and strokes. Every art gives a meaning to those moments spent with colours and every colour gives words to your emotions.
I believe in exploring all areas of art form from faces to figures to abstract to nature.However, Human Faces have always attracted me ever since I picked up a pencil and started sketching. From the face of Mickey mouse found on the Pencil box cover I carried to school, to teenage idols where I ended up sketching Rahul Dravid, Subhash Chandra Bose, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Rajiv Gandhi and many other eminent personalities; reading their faces especially eyes was my favorite stress buster. My transition from studying faces to abstract women figures happened when unravelling mystery of a woman’s body attracted my brush and all I painted was the back of a woman in various postures; particularly inspired by paintings of John Fernandes. Today I dwell in abstract expressions of art that follows no rule but gives you a sense of satisfaction by the sheer play with colours and mixed media as though talking to you directly.
Road to Sangam for me is a treasure trove of art promoting the best in the ART space with the most genuine intentions of providing a platform for budding and accomplished artists; not only helping them gain visibility but also guiding them through their journey of Artistic expression. RTS is a voice filling the gap between the art and its audience by giving a wholistic approach of services with global presence.

“I may be a biologist, an adult, and a rather young man to be a part of such a big venture, but above everything else, I am a poet. That’s how this started for me. Back when I was just a simple poet, I could give my feelings a voice yet I had no stage to speak upon. I know there are a lot of people out there that feel the same way; artists with voices but no stage to speak on. And it is for those who feel what I felt, that longing to have our voices and emotions heard and felt, that I am here now. I hope that together, no matter how steadily it may be, we will build a stage for our voices to be heard and have an audience who cannot wait to hear what we have to say.”
I have been given many names in my career, those of consultant, coach, or project manager. One that appeals to me most is the one of writer. Writing has reopened cauldrons of my mind that had been sealed by avoiding self-reflection for many years. I found through my use of written words a way to express myself better than I ever could. At the junction of my mind and hands came a certain sense for fulfillment. This is where Road to Sangam wishes to take on another. When Kshitij told me first about it, I could only be compelled by its laudable purpose, to help individuals that have planted the seeds of their creativity, harvest a community, an audience and a certain sense of fulfillment.
