When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be — Lao Tzu

Chetan Mahajan is an accidental author. He thinks Penguin published his first book because of how sensational the story was — “The Bad Boys of Bokaro jail” was about a month he spent in an Indian jail. Chetan is pretty sure it wasn’t because of the quality of his writing. Since then Chetan has left the city for a small Himalayan village. He has left the corporate world to be a full-time author and blogger. And he has founded the Himalayan Writing Retreat. These retreats are Chetan’s attempt to help others move their book projects forward. In the process he hopes to learn more about writing himself. You can learn more about these writing workshops at .
