I was born and brought up in Guntur and my education up to Post Graduation took place there. I did my M.Phil., at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. I worked as Associate Editor in a project related to Jawaharlal Nehru at Teen Murti Bhawan, New Delhi. Right now I am living in Hyderabad. After taking voluntary retirement, I started writing poems, short stories, essays and travelogues in Telugu. This is my first travelogue in English which I wrote as a tribute to Tracey who can enjoy reading it in English. Most of my writings in Telugu got published from time to time in different print and web magazines. I have plans to publish them as anthologies.
