Bio:

This 79-year-old author was born in a family that had to migrate from its native place, D.I.Khan (North-West Frontier Province) at the time of partitioning of India in 1947, to settle in Delhi. With a blessed and pleasant spell of family life for 57 years in the company of wife, the consequential growth of family taking newer forms through children and grand-children, providing an in- depth experience of a married life, he seems to convey that he enjoys placing before the readers at least something to know from a different perspective, Through his literary fictions. He studied, grew and developed and worked for livelihood in Delhi. Having retired as teacher after working in various schools of Delhi Government, he turned to practicing as an Advocate in Delhi. He believes writing fiction in English is his passion. By now, he has authored five novels; and the work on the sixth one is in progress.

He maintains that his faith in the existence of the Omnipresent, Omnipotent and the Benevolent has capacitated this `di’abled` person TO USE SIMULTANEOUSLY ALL THE TEN FINGERS OF HIS HANDS, TO WRITE, WHEREAS THE NORMAL PRACTICE FOR WRITING REQUIRES THE COMBINED USE OF JUST THUMB AND THE ADJACENT FINGER TO HOLD THE PEN FOR WRITING. Thus, he is thankful to His Grace, in coming to his aid in making this humble author express his feelings before the readers at large.
