Bijal - an academician by profession and a poet/writer at heart presently resides at Ahmedabad, Gujarat with her family. “When life surprises me, writing soothes me” is what Bijal says about her connection with words. Her passion lies in unfolding through her musing, what a painter does through his painting. The greatest painter according to her is God. Her creative writing, therefore, unfolds her feelings about people, occurrences and circumstances, many times.
