For me it always has been a passion thing. Life is too short so one should always try to follow their dreams no matter how many obstacles come their way. I cannot even remember a time when I was not interested in cars. Right from my childhood with the ritual of collecting scale models to wasting all my pocket money on car magazines, the world of automobiles has always fascinated me.
After completing my studies and trying my hand at a few different things I realised it was time to pursue my dream to be an auto journo. It was a case of now or never! Started out freelancing and then ended up at a magazine where I learnt a lot. Things like how to weave a story and the basic education of journalism. After getting some useful experience under my belt I then moved to the online world where I got the first proper taste of the motoring journo life.
Working at a major automobile portal, I used to test cars and write about them plus also handling some key sections of the site. Over the years I have driven some great cars and also uncovered the people behind them only to realize that I have just scratched the surface. Now with Motor Trend India things will only get bigger and better!
