IMG_7805_KIn an attempt to rid himself of the monotony of a nine-to-five routine, Akshay ventured into the world of freelance writing. His writings on popular Indian culture and on sports have appeared in The Caravan, Man’s World, Mumbai Mirror, Business Standard, NBA.com/India and AOL India. Akshay also worked for the BCCI and has covered the ICC CWC 2011, the Indian Premier League (2011 and 2012) and the Champions League T20 (2010, 2011 and 2012).

His first work of non-fiction, a biography of yesteryear poet-lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi, was published by HarperCollins in December 2013.

Akshay lives in Mumbai with his wife and daughter. You can follow him on Twitter here.

    Dear Akshay,
    Congratulations on your forthcoming book on Sahir. Like you, I am also a fan of Sahir and maintain a blog on songs of Sahir. It goes by the name of sahir-ludhianvi.blogspot.in/
    Please let me know of the release of the book, as I would love to read it.
