Biography of Salik Shah
Salik Shah is a poet, journalist, editor and publisher—originally from Kathmandu now in exile.
In 2012, he founded Pulpflow—a design, strategy and communication firm (“think school”) . He is passionate about liberal arts, technology and education.
Apart from his advertising and consulting job, Shah is working on the first issue of Foreigner Magazine, a quarterly devoted to the readers and writers in exile, to be ready to go to print by mid 2013.
In the past, Shah worked as a copyeditor for a U.S. national broadsheet. He also assisted in documentaries for National Geographic and Hallmark channels, following a brief filmmaking course at Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) . His foray in advertising saw him straddling roles between coding, content, creative and management, at some of India’s topmost agencies and production houses like Fahrenheit Films, Jack in the Box Worldwide (Bang Bang Films) and Webchutney.
Hence, he struggles to remain a poet.

Cozy, beautiful places to curl up with a good book...
Mother, it's all gone -
the colour of your hair
has turned ashen,
and I've grown to be
a shadow of the man
you hate so much.
The man keeps fighting
obscure devils of his own.
