MEd, PhD
Poet, Writer, Educator

Writing poetry is integral to my being. I am above all, a poet and a seeker; being an educator is a function of this. Through the act of writing I experience the world and give back to it, I create and recreate myself. I was born in India and educated in Kuala Lumpur, Chandigarh, Mumbai, and Toronto. I made Toronto my home in 1992. Considering that I was raised in two countries and have lived in three, and even as child in India lived in a number of cities, it is not surprising that displacement and a search for home are leitmotifs in my work. This is also why more than a decade ago I came to view myself as a global citizen with emotional roots in Canada, India, Malaysia, and Tibet (a country I have yet to visit!).
