Garima Gupta has done B.E. in telecommunications but left her promising career as a software engineer to pursue the most rewarding job of a parent and a writer. She believes in living life to the fullest, and has been a prize winning writer, debater, comparer, model, choreographer, technocrat and sportsperson. Writing, for Garima is not a hobby, but a compulsion. She hopes to publish a book of stories for young readers one day. Her writings on net can be found at hindinest.com and path2usa.com. Brought up in Bhopal, she has lived in the US and the Philippines before settling in Bangalore.
Garima writes not just about the various issues and challenges that parents of young kids face, but also about how to make parenting a less daunting and more satisfying experience. A lot of credit for this column goes to her two little kids; they give her first hand experience of staying calm in the eye of the storm.
