Dialogue,not violence, is the solution to every problem,big or small

Background Information

I write because I enjoy it. It's a form of relaxation for me. It doesn't matter to me whether what I write is published or not. The writing has already paid dividends in the act of putting words on paper.

I was raised in Shillong, India.  Educated at St Edmund's College. Left in 1980 to head an export company in Taiwan. After 25 years in Taiwan, I moved to Miami in 2005. In 2007 moved to Plano, Texas.Author of Stories of a Salesman(collection of short stories),Deep Roots (a three-act play),Themes in Indo Anglian Literature,(literary criticism). A number of my stories have found their way in anthologies. My book of literary criticism, published in late 2009,Themes in the Indian Short Story in English:  an Historical and a Critical Survey has been well received in India by college teachers, students and research scholars


Additional Information

There is a lot of critical work on 3 of the 4 genre of Indian Writing in English the novel, poetry and drama. Very little on the short story. During the time I lived in Taiwan, I pursued my interest: reading collections of short stories in English by Indians. I made notes in my journal. When I moved to Dallas, TX, in 2005, I put these notes together. My book "Themes in the Indian Short Story in English: an Historical and a Critical Survey" came out last year. In a sense it took me 25 years to write this book.Because I guess its the first comprehensive work on this genre, it has received heart-warming reviews.
