No pseudonyms for me


My first stint with writing was in 2007-08, in MSN’s Reader’s archive, back then I worked and needed pseudonyms, because I was absolutely obsessed with writing.

Courtesy MSN’s editor of that time and my bosses.

MSN’s editor pampered my silly writings silly and encouraged me to go crazy and my bosses, well, I used to go to office and sit there all day, sometimes days in a row without their showing up, so I utilized my time in writing. But I had hope that I will be able to get a better job and I did not wanted my future employers to google my name and see dozens of writings about various social issues! Some were so angry that I had to use pseudonyms – three Aaina, Chanakya and Agni.

Then I became jealous of my own pseudonym Agni- I noticed how much the editor loved the writings I wrote using it, then I realized that if I really want to write I will have to stop using pseudonyms, because they ultimately can hog quite a substantial amount of limelight if you want to hide behind them, and if you don’t then why use them! So I shifted to reality based fiction and used my name, only my name thereafter

I really don’t want to build my reputation using a false name, a fake image or photograph- I believe that makes us lose our authenticity too!




A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
