Manish is a young engineer -cum- story teller hailing from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh. Monotonous and sundry chores of day-to-day life irked him and thus he decided to live a parallel life which would be nothing but more than ordinary. This flare in him made him take a break from job; travel, read, observe people, take cues and conceive ideas, finally pen down into stories which are crafted with compassion, empathy, love and care.     

His first book Calcutta Blues is a collection of beautiful short stories set at the backdrop of Calcutta of 90s. These stories are an attempt to showcase our society and it's audacity, things we see to see but rarely give a thoughtful pause. He tried to lend his eyes and ears to the readers to bring his perspective to the foreground.
