Since young, stories have been part of Vijayalakshmi Sridhar's world—both telling and listening to. Her day job as a freelance feature writer for the mainstream dailies and monthlies is the platform through which she meets people, many of whom have found their way into her stories' characters—either as they are or in disguised forms. She believes that human relationships and their dynamics are the most interesting things to write about. She is keen to continue her journey as a story writer in non- specific genre. A mother of two girls, Vijayalakshmi is also interested and involved in many other creative pursuits.
