Hello! I’m Sid!
I am, what you would call, an accidental writer. Writing’s always come a bit naturally to me, but I’d never actually considered pursuing it as a career.
I spent the better part of a decade, working in London for various multinational conglomerates. It was when we returned to India in 2013, that I decided to take up writing. I was looking for a break from the corporate rat race, and had volunteered to look after my 18-month old, while my wife returned to work.
Of course, things soon took off – perhaps, a bit too quicker than I’d anticipated – and within a short period, I had managed to carve a little spot in the blogging world.
At the moment, when I’m not running after our toddler, tripping over LEGO blocks or fending off paparazzi (ok, the last one’s just a wish!), I write about fatherhood, parenting in general, social satire, humour and fiction. I’m also working on two manuscripts, in the hope that both of them will make their way to your bookshelves this year; if I can get my son’s blessings to finish writing, that is.
Thank you for dropping by, and I hope you’ll find something to whet your ‘reading appetite’.
P.S. If opportunity does present itself, I may, at times, try to regale you with tales of my fatherhood escapades involving dirty diapers, projective food attacks, ninja-sleeping positions and tackling high-rise LEGO buildings.
P.P.S. If you’re curious about how I spend my days with my son, here is a peek:
Note: I should also be quick to add that within a few minutes, the army was decapitated, plundered and destroyed by ‘friendly fire’. What can I say? Parenting – it’s awesome!
