It was in his early childhood that Raz D had first heard about how the magical merits of a pen, could dwarf the mighty reputation of the sword. So while others were busy collecting the usual teenage souvenirs, the boy started gathering words. He perhaps knew that one day words were what would rescue him. Born in a Mumbai middle class family, Raz D was the eldest of two brothers and his first wake up call came when he lost his father early in life. His mother, being a strong and resourceful woman like most single mothers, managed to raise two school going sons. Now as a worldly wise advertising writer, Raz D continues to discover the magical merits of the pen. A compelling storyteller, he is certainly an author to write home about.
