Abhishek Mehta is a marketing professional living in New Delhi, India. Though poetry does not come to him by education or vocation, it rises for him from that deeply personal space where unnamed thoughts move about bumping into each other until they've bruised themselves raw and urgent. With his writing he aims to make the paler things in life, less apologetically pale. When not writing he enjoys video games and piano music.
