Service Description

But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think." - Lord Byron

I believe myself to be that writer - someone who can make a difference in the way people think. I write news articles, editorials, on both world affairs and social and cultural issues, first-person accounts, travel pieces and short stories.
I can also file news reports, conduct interviews and do book and film reviews just as easily.
Creative writing is what I am exceptionally good at. It gives me the freedom to write about life as I see it. I put my heart into my writing and follow it up with a brainy re-write exercise. My portfolio showcases my talent at writing in the first person. Believe me, not every writer has the knack of pouring out your heart into what you are saying.
I make a decided effort to listen when my client talks. That means I can comply with my clients' requests and instructions to the dot, and follow up with status reports, and any changes that need to be made along the way because I strive to incorporate the client's feedback in my work.
My timings are Sunday to Thursday, 8am-6pm (GMT+4).
I am quite strict about timings because I like to balance my personal and professional life as perfectly as is possible. My hours of rest and relaxation are what keep me spirited and active throughout the week. And ensure that my work is always up to the mark.
Needless to say, I will handle your projects...
