Vedashree Khambete-Sharma is an advertising professional who frequently runs out of space while filling her name in official forms. For the past twenty years, she has flirted with the English language through advertising, journalism and terribly amateur poetry. In the process, she has won several Indian and international awards for advertising, a silver medal for a poem called ‘Mathematics’ and absolutely no recognition for her journalism. She is quite proud of the medal though. Vedashree also has a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature, though which specific bachelor’s is anybody’s guess. She lives in Mumbai with her husband, daughter and the uneasy feeling that referring to herself in the third person is just plain creepy.
