Join Sid, the author of the novella, as he narrates the chronicles of Ashitha’s journey, from a lower middle class family to a dazzling corporate life, and her struggles en route as she is torn between the emotional bliss of a college friend and the fantasy brush of a corporate boss.
IT'S OFFICIAL, STUPID reflects on the need to differentiate official from unofficial, demarcate serious from casual and distinguish intent from motives.
The human brain is wired to learn through experiences and Sid is passionate about sharing his extensive experiences, in traveling, working on diverse assignments, and meeting people from varied backgrounds, through the medium of books, blogs, publications, and guest talks. His tryst with writing started when his teachers at St. Aloysius School, Bandra, Mumbai recognized his skill and encouraged him to develop it further and since then he has not looked back.
Sid's write-ups, on Colleges and Universities-Choosing the right fit , featured for 3 consecutive weeks, in 3-parts, in Assam Tribune, North East's highest circulated English daily. Almost a dozen articles, authored by him, on Ethical Sales, Career Management, CAT Prep were published in several business, management and academic periodicals.
Sid holds qualifications in engineering and management from MIT Manipal and IIM Kozhikode respectively but is also an educationist by heart and has deep interest in applications of experiential learning in school education.
Donning multiple hats is typical of Sid. In 2017, he crowdfunded the Bihar Ki Beti campaign, on Milaap in support of education for a girl child in Begusarai, Bihar. He also did a flash "Project Smile" snack event, for underprivileged kids, at KFC. Sid gets deeply moved when he reads about women who silently suffer, atrocities and harassment, to protect their livelihoods. This Novella, born out of empathy, has a tale to tell, and a strong underlying message to imbibe.
