Random facts about the Author:
1. I love old Hindi songs from Mukesh era and I still recall most of the lyrics. In my college days I used to win many ‘Antakshari competition’ easily as no one could dispute the lyrics of many of these rare songs.  
2. English is my third language that I picked up pretty late. I used to write little bit in Hindi during school days. My mother tongue is Maithili.
3. I am a mining graduate and worked in mines as my first job. It was one of the great learning experience during early days. 
4. I am least adventurous when it comes to food. During my international travels I used to carry pre-cooked Indian food packets like MTR. Some custom authorities used to find this very weird.
5. I have active interest in startups, banking technologies and digital disruption brought about by things like artificial intelligence, automation and blockchain.

About the Book:

"Transit Lounge" is a contemporary book consisting of short incidents, observations and reflections while travelling to 30 countries across six different continents during the last 15 years. 

The book is a personal account of travels to places in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.  

It was interesting to observe all these different cultures and people from an Indian perspective. The book is a compilation of small incidents and events during such travels; it includes losing an air ticket, dealing with difficult custom officials or getting mugged in a prime location in a foreign country.
