A retired Indian civil servant who has taken to writing as a citizen journalist. Interested in topical and environmental issues, I not only try to inform but also project a view that is independent and unbiased. Having written for major and minor newspapers in India and for several online citizen journalism sites for almost a decade, I can claim to have acquired the necessary experience to put across my view succinctly.

I have also been actively involved in community work through the Bhopal Citizens' Forum, perhaps the foremost pressure group in the town
