Pooja Poddar Marwah

Pooja Poddar Marwah is an Indian author and blogger. (October 22,1978) Her foray into writing began in a parking lot, whilst she was waiting for her kids’ co-curriculars to get over. Her debut book, Pursuit – Drawn by Destiny won two digital awards and was nominated by the Valley of Words Literature Festival, held in Dehradun. It gives the reader an insight into the power of belief. It focusses on the challenges that people face when they find love in their middle ages. Her blog Random Conversations deals with the aspects of relationships in the world today. She tackles the most complex of issues with her unique light hearted flair for the written word. It is in the little imperfections that Pooja finds her perfection. She studied at Welham Girls School and left after class 10 to go to StormLake High School in USA for a cultural exchange program under the Rotary International Banner. On returning, she joined Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics in Mumbai and graduated with top honours. More than business and accounts, it was her family business of sterling silver that fascinated her and she joined her parents into the manufacturing and design of precious metals. Her thirst for knowledge led her to do a 3 year extensive course at the SNDT University wherein she trained to be a certified gemmologist. Marriage brought her to Dehradun where she diversified into the Entertainment industry for the Corporate sector. The creative streak in her refused to let her rest. And, she began walking onto other paths to launch a newspaper for children titled, The Soaring Eaglet; to empower them with happy positive news. Her book has won her many a review on both offline and online media and Pooja continues to follow her heart and write. She is a Thought Leader on the Sipping Thoughts platform that aims to empower women, through her blogs on sensitive topics. She has recently joined the Times of India as a weekly blogger and words her views on current affairs with honesty and humour. Not limiting her creative streak, Pooja is currently making a podcast of her popular blogs and her voice resonates her zeal for life.
