A dyed-in-the-wool Bengali, food is her first love – for the mind (books, reading, writing, adda, theatre) and for the stomach (savouring the finest, the homeliest and everything-in-between food fare from all over). Married to an unBengali technocommercialsalesstrategy expert husband, Leela is based out of Chennai which she calls her beloved second home – albeit, one she had almost careened away from, caught in a blitzkrieg of a culture shock decades ago!

Mahesh is an experienced content management professional with a keen interest in eLearning, technology trends, and advertising.

I am an Instructional Designer in Origin Learning Solutions since 2012. I have always had a flare for writing and creating something new. Every aspect of teaching and learning has always been inspiring to me in every facet. Thus the need to keep learning new ideas has always been there in me. I have always looked forward to getting the best out of life. The desire to be fully satisfied with whatever I do helped me complete my under graduation in Physics, and then my bachelor studies in Education. My love for literature and the varied cultures led me as far as England, where I completed my masters in Management studies. That richness helped me understand the importance of the language and its many attributes.
