Dentist by education, writer by passion. In my earlier avatar I taught budding dentists and published a book on my subject expertise. A ‘sabbatical’ from work to take care of my super-energetic baby girl reignited my dormant love for writing. I write for healthcare and medical websites, as well as blog for pleasure on social, cultural issues & other simple little things of life.
