Arvind Passey

Arvind Passey

Arvind Passey began his professional life marching up and down the drill square of the Indian Military Academy as a gentleman cadet and ended his job-era playing hide-&-seek with media teams as the Head of Corporate Communications. A few of the 1800+ poems written by him are published in journals in India & UK but the rest still in notebooks, loose sheets, penned on napkins, and in computer files. He has had short-stories published in anthologies and articles in The Education Post, The Huffington Post, BusinessInsider, InsightBuzzar, & MarketingBuzzar and others. He has been discussing technology on UNBOXED and TownHall on NDTV, moderated a few education-related discussions on DilliAajTak, attended Kumaon Lit Fest and SMVDU Lit Life as a speaker, moderated a discussion on journalism vs blogging with Saeed Naqvi etc. He dreams of travelling to every country in the world… and of finally completing his first novel. On the social media he is /arvindpassey everywhere.

I am open to all kinds of blogging assignments in travel, technology, lifestyle products, food & drinks, hotels, restaurants, resorts and so on. My contact details are given at the end of this document.
