We lived the usual, predictable urban life till March 2015. Corporate job. Long commute. Pressure. The question popped up – what is it all for?

When that question raises its head and you give an honest answer, chances are you will leave the city for a different life. So we left the city for a village.IMG_2840 (2)

We now live in the Kumaon Himalayas. Our kids go to the local school. We have work we pursue remotely, or invent new occupations to suit our new reality. Having published a book*(see link below), writing came naturally, so this – the Uncity Blog -is one such occupation. And with writing at the centre of things, helping others getting their book published by way of the Himalayan Writing Retreat ( www.himalayanwritingretreat.com  )  was a natural extension.
