Hailing from Hyderabad City, India, I have been composing poetry for the past 25-years and over 700 poems have been published in over 40 countries. Graduated in Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) from Osmania University, I successfully accomplished a course in Post Graduate Diploma in journalism. Attracted towards literature since teen-age, especially poetry, this has paved a way to transform me into a poet.
