My Author Profile

Looking back at my life: will give you an insight into my blogs and social media posts. Also as author of my five literary fiction books.
My first job, at the age of 23, was with SITA World Travels, the leading operator of its times – as corporate, international sales executive. In 1993, the travelling class was very different, from what it is today.

I joined Jet Airways in 1995 and after two-yearly experiences, with the major departments of this airline, I was with the service quality department for ground and inflight – the first service quality department that was set up in India, way before Standard Chartered bank where my colleague in Mumbai was head-hunted for, let alone all the other companies that followed suit.

In between this Jet Airways stint, I also worked for a while with Bank of America, in their customer services department. Starting as a teller in a wholesale bank, with only current accounts – I’ve seen and counted a lot of money in life. 😛😀
Then, I was in charge of reservations before and when ITC Sheraton hotels set up shop in Calcutta. Followed by a much longer stint with Tanishq, just when it was in the phase of corporate change – from niche westernised boutiques to being the preferred local jeweller in every market of the country.

A stint with Kaya skin clinics in Mumbai and Chennai, was preceded by that with Shoppersstop – in their speciality retail division that included the premium brands – Mac, Crossword bookstores, Mothercare(1st standalone store in India) and the Brio Cafe. For all of which Shopperstop was the master franchisee pan-India.
The last assignment, was with Randstad India as senior executive search consultant in the consumer, retail and services vertical.

All this would give you an inkling into why I write, share photos, post, and above all author the kind of books I have.
You are defined by all your experiences in life…and I carry all of mine in a mental backpack wherever I am.

Since 2010, I’ve written five literary fiction books, illustrated in the link below, that I’ve shared earlier, not to mention I have been the publicist for 6 of my journalist husband’s travel books since 2009, having accompanied him for a lot of the ground work towards writing them.
