About the Author

I’m thrilled to have you here, dear reader.

Wisdom from the Smiling Panda is an effort to spread ideas that uplift, inform and (hopefully) transform you to believe – in yourself, the universe and affirmative action.

The inspiration comes from my most prized possession – a stuffed Panda which never fails to put a smile on my face, no matter what the situation is in my life. I can’t begin to tell you the joy this 32-year-old man derives in getting a hug from his panda. It’s my wish to be able to put into words; this joy that I feel and weave ideas around it to serve you.

I draw inspiration from the Indian epics – Ramayana and Mahabharata; Batman and Snoopy (FYI, who also graces my life in a stuffed toy avatar.) Lust for personal growth has led me to balance out my civil engineering consultancy and trading to attain a diploma in clinical hypnotherapy, become a 200 hour yoga teacher. Reading, writing, and sharing fulfils me like nothing else.

Welcome to my world! Thank you for taking out the time to read this.
