Born in a cricket crazy nation, it was difficult to follow football - especially when your whole family and group of friends are hell bent on watching a test match rather than a North London derby. But, my passion for the beautiful game and love for Arsenal inspired me through the toughest of obstacles.
And realizing early that I was not fit to be a part of the on-field action and my love for literature brought to me the pleasures of football writing - first just for myself, then for my friends to read.
Changing times and the digital age means that to get readers, sooner or later, internet has to become your nest.
I have been a life-long Arsenal fan and Dennis Bergkamp is my favorite gunner of all time.
