Better perceived as a common local writer, Ratandeep Sharma was born in Mumbai in 1969. Born in the third generation of a partition struck Indian family, he grew up in Hazaribagh, a small town, a few miles from Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand and has spent most of his childhood in the thick green suburbs of Chotanagpur plateau. A teacher/councellor from Hazaribag, Jharkhand, his poems and stories is a treat for a literary inclined reader. As a writer, he is as productive as ever in his early nineties, and gets many of his ideas by reminiscing while gazing at the small world around the thick green hide outs around the plateau. His poems and stories reflect the essence of life replete with unassuming humor manifesting a deep love for nature and people. When he was a boy, he couldn't imagine a world beyond the small community of priests, nuns & catholic life. His schooling was of ‘hyper-Catholic', traits which clearly features in all his writings.
He graduated with a BA (Hons) in English from St Columba’s College, Ranchi University, and worked from 1994 to 2004 as a teacher in DAV Public School, Hazaribag. Being a teacher was a crash course in how society works, but he realized he didn't want it as a career. He presently works in Hyderabad and has taken up the writing of fiction full-time.
