He wanted to be a writer after he completed his college education in the year 1972. But he was inducted into family business due to shortage of men to look after flourishing business. A sort of mechanical life it was and his inclination towards writing as he wished could not materialize immediately.
He wanted to be a novelist but tried to write some articles of research on his favourite subject; due to paucity of time he could not do anything as he liked. Likewise 17 years passed sans his notice and that gave him great pain and he uttered his feeling in a verse to his friend and that made his friend to the level of advising him to write poetry!
With the available time he started to write poetry from 1989 on. In 1992 he has completed writing 68 poems that in three years have become a compilation of a poetic anthology called Dreams, Ideas and Realities published by Halo Papers, India, which is the first of his Poetry Book he has published in 1996!
