Kiran is a senior program manager working for an e-commerce giant in Tokyo, Japan. He mainly writes project plans and reports but indulges in writing short stories and poetry in his free time. He is a cosmopolitan person who supports diversity and inclusion.
Kiran was born and brought up in Nashik, Maharashtra, India. He was a voracious reader from school days and participated in essay writing, storytelling, and drawing competitions. Some of his essays and drawings were published in the local newspaper, Gaavkari. Noticing that he was hooked on detective novels, his father, a school headmaster, gave him a collection of famous Marathi comedy books, travelogues, and biographies to introduce him to good-quality literature.
However, all this creativity was put on the back burner when Kiran topped the merit list in 10th grade and went to the College of Engineering, Pune (COEP). After graduation, he started working in the software industry and relocated to Tokyo.
But the desire to write was still there. During the days of the pandemic, Kiran thought about rekindling the hobby. He restarted by writing a travel blog about Cherry Blossom in Japan on https://www.makemytrip.com/ and his story was published as part of an anthology. Unicorn Magazine published a couple of his poems in February 2021. He compiled an anthology, Hanabira, published by Ukiyoto Publishing. Since then, his short stories were published in anthologies like Abacus and Pride, published by Ukiyoto Publishing, and Narratives in Monochrome, published by Flairs and Glairs. A couple more of his stories and a travel blog are awaiting publication.
Kiran is married with two children and a puppy. When not working or writing, he enjoys playing with his daughter and taking his puppy for a walk.
