Meet the Author

Srini Chandrasekharan is a philosopher masquerading as a writer. He grew up in the lovely city of Chennai in India, where he learned to play the violin, studied French at the Alliance Francaise, devoured English literature at the British Council and played tennis while attending the Madras Christian College school.

Four years at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, were filled with an eclectic mix of captaining volleyball and basketball teams, serving back to back terms as a student senator and sports secretary, and writing for the Campus Times. After IIT Madras, the Unites States beckoned. In the US, he went on to receive a master's degree in business administration from Carnegie Mellon University, where he was awarded the prestigious Vira Heinz fellowship. After a successful stint in the US for thirteen years, he moved back to India. He has been residing in Bangalore for the last eight years where he works as a Director for a large multinational corporation.

Love for writing comes second only to his wife and two daughters. 3 Lives, in search of bliss is his first literary work.
