Hello, world!

I am your host Arpita Pramanick on Scribbles@Arpita. Thank you so much for finding my blog and reading this!

I was raised in the steel town of Durgapur, West Bengal, India. I am an engineer by education, a decision scientist by profession and an *aspiring* author by passion.

I self-published Bound by Life on Amazon in June 2015. Bound by Life contains ten short stories inspired from real life (read my life). I can get all serious and say that the stories reflect on social issues, superstitions, disease, death and beyond, as I probably have said in the book description on Amazon. Truth is, I can’t stop the stories of my life shouting at the back of my mind to be put into words. So, I did what I could to shut them up: I caged them in a book!

Now, I am no MFA holder. I have no clue as to character or plot development. But I am a perfectionist and I go to the greatest length to make my stories read polished. Check out the short stories on my blog or head to my Publications page to read the stories that have appeared in various magazines, or better yet (for me), buy my book on Amazon!

Apart from writing, I love reading, cooking and an occasional game of chess vs the computer (I suck at it, though). I also like meeting new people and travelling. My first book was a hand-stitched journal listing the tours I had taken inside my hometown. That has perished in the cogwheels of time, so you have to take my word for it! I also love the French language, and hope to learn it someday!

I am very talkative, but you guessed that already, right? Feel free to drop me a line. I am eager to hear from you!
