A homo-sapient with ORD — Obsessive Rhyming Disorder, Giridhar was born in a city named Dharwad, Karnataka— India, Giridhar always wondered if it’s something about cities that makes Art stick in the air & gives wings to those seeking beyond the obvious, The city of Dharwad has a history with the literary kind. But then Giridhar found his true love affair with words was through his mother who held a Masters in Arts & must have fed me a handful of her thoughts, even before he made an entry into the world. Giridhar Jaded led a life of adherence until the age of 35 (did someone say mid-life?) before realizing that the voices in his head wanted an outlet ever so badly. When the floodgates opened, Giridhar found it impossible to hold the words that had started a silent revolution inside until then and a book of poetry ensued in a mere 40 days. Giridhar has a Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering & also an MBA in Information Technology. He is married to Rachna Sahu and lives in Dallas, Texas. Giridhar has sailed through living the corporate life for 13+ years & currently works as a senior QA manager in an IT company. Giridhar believes that he could live the rest of his life speaking poetically if he tried, that is. There is a camaraderie that Giridhar feels in his mind where the thoughts are constantly in a state of overflow. Besides his passion in writing, Giridhar loves to travel, cannot imagine a day without music & has a newfound vigor to be on the fitness wagon even though he slips up every now and then.
