Indranil Mukherjee grew up in the verdant state of Odisha (then, Orissa) in eastern India. Right from schooling through till his professional education was accomplished there. While life took him across the country and parts of the globe after embarking on his software career, he is happiest when he is back in Odisha on trips, meeting with his oldest friends, sampling the lovely local cuisine, and visiting places where his memories have the deepest links with his carefree childhood days.
Indranil is an aspiring author of fiction but a long-time
amateur writer, who has taken a break from his software career to give
expression to his main passion: Writing. And if provided with timely sustenance
to keep body and soul together, he loves to read. Besides these, he digs
driving, travelling to all corners of the world, sampling all variety of food,
meeting people, learning new stuff, listening to music, and about a couple of
hundred other things. Curious about life and armed with 25 years’ worth of
experience observing people from all over the world while working with them, he
fancies he has stories to tell. Rather nifty ones.
Besides completing The Station Master, a collection of short stories based on an Indian Railways officer’s real-life experiences—he already has a novelette eBook selling on Amazon titled "Re-Kill: when an assassin's professional pride is hurt..."—he has several works underway that comprise sci-fi, fantasy-humour-adventure, thriller, and has a maelstrom of other plots whirling in his head that occasionally meld nicely to create interesting dreams. And yes, a spot of scripting too.Indranil is married to Sanghamitra, and they live in Delhi, along with their mother. Their son, Ayoush, lives in the US, big into data.
