My name is Amar Vyas, and I am a husband, dog lover, author, podcaster, and a sustainability consultant. I live in Bengaluru.
I created this site as a way to develop a daily writing habit. I plan to write one post every day, on a topics that may be of interest to you (they certainly are of interest to me!) : reviews of products and services, podcasting, entrepreneurship, travel, and much more.
If you have any comments or suggestions about my writing, or this site, please reach out to me on twitter @meamarvyas or write to me using the below form.
