Roopa Haridas

After spending more than 14 years in an (accidental) banking career trying hard to make sense of balance sheets and perplexing ratios, I finally decided to move on and threw a break-up party as the year awakened to 2023. I groped to find my lost love for letters, and re-ignited the relationship with them. Letters and words soon warmed up to me again thankfully, and once again we have restarted the lost love affair. Reflecting on what I read gives me immense pleasure which transcends while writing reviews. I have done a couple of collaborations with the Kerala Forest Dept, penning an introduction to a documentary and sub-titling another. In my previous birth, I had won 2nd prize in a university level competition. Also, I was awarded for the best campus story by a state level competition conducted by a leading magazine which was also published in one of their editions. Apart from books, I love coffee, classical dance, music, travelling, interior designing, art and fashion; not strictly in that order though(apart from the coffee part)! I am an admirer of good humour, and love sarcasm as a way of speech. The platter is pretty diverse when it comes to my education – Bachelors in Physics , Masters in English, Diploma from NIIT and doing PhD in English. I hail from Kerala, but I get quite possessive about all the places I stay, Bangalore being the most recent one.
