My name is Devika Rajeev and I'm an independent consultant from Bangalore, India.
This is the place I bring together a lot of the things I'm interested in - my work, my reading, my writing, my travels, the city I live in, and all the other interesting things that happen to me. I've been an on-and-off blogger for ten years now, and you'll see vestiges of the earlier versions of this site all over.
What does my work involve? I majored in HR, and so most of my work involves - well, different aspects of HR. I develop training modules, I do assessments, I do some HR-related writing, and I'm also trying to branch out into HR communications (purely out of interest and a hunch that I might be good at it).
What are these book reviews then? Reading is a childhood hobby that I've managed to retain as an adult. Whenever a book strikes me particularly (whether in a good way or a bad way), I like to write about it. These reviews help me retain the book's flavour longer than I would otherwise.
There's also a writing section. I fancy myself a writer. I write short stories, and I would love to write a novel some day (after I've built up the courage and the confidence). I've won a nice award for one of my short stories, too. I've put up some bits and pieces of my writing here on the site.
If I keep talking about all the parts of the site, then we're going to be here for ever. So I'll leave you to explore. Feel free to let me know what you think!
