Who Am I? Not Spiderman!

That's me at Paris Catacombs, one of my favourite places on Earth.


I was born in Spring and share my birthday with Johnny Cash, Victor Hugo, Michael Bolton, Li Na, John Harvey Kellogg, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Levi Strauss, Everton Weekes and many more. However, these are not important details. What happened after I was born is probably very non-essential too. Still, I will share the story of how I landed up where I am today.

As a child, I wanted to be a sportsperson, lawyer, I wanted to join the military, politician and much more. Even though my parents have always supported me in whatever I wanted to do, there were particular moments when my mother had her funny ways of saying no. Like for example, when I wanted to be a lawyer, she told me, "Some criminal will get hurt." When I wanted to join the military, she said, "Aren't there enough soldiers to protect us from enemies? If you become one, we will need multiple soldiers to protect the enemies from you." Well, she wasn't wrong, I had my ways of getting into trouble.

Journalism happened behest of two disastrous moments in our lives. It was while watching the live broadcast of 9/11 and Columbia space shuttle disaster, I realized that maybe journalism is how I will serve humanity. After all, newspapers played a crucial role during our independence movement, isn't it?

However, what I learned after nearly a decade of being a journalist is — the grass ALWAYS looks greener on the other side. No matter what grass you may have been forced to smoke. Pun intended.

So now I fly mostly and I take pictures of those dusted interiors, greased engines and inedible wings of jets. When I am not flying or taking pictures, I act like a diplomat, use hefty words and build partnerships for my organization.

And yes, in between all these, I watch Grey's Anatomy and clean my cat's poop.

So that's who I am. Simple and annoying to the core. Maybe a little friendly and a pathetic jester too.

Here are the links to the stories I have done for Sportstar magazine, yes the one whose posters you may have collected when you were young. I have heard that multiple times.

And also the link of a cricket website, part of India Webportal — a JV between Penske Media and Zee Entertainment Pvt Ltd. — yes the same website you have always confused with Cricbuzz or CricInfo.
