How to Enter a Poem by Abbas Bagasrawala

Abbas Bagasrawala is a writer of blogs, restaurant reviews and curiously long surnames, especially his own. An engineer and an entrepreneur by profession, he resides in the industrial hub of Pune, India, where the summers are hell and the monsoons are an underachieving disappointment. A person who prefers his hometown of Bombay, where he has fond memories of love and kheema pao, though not necessarily in that order.

His expanse of writing includes humorous non-fiction, humorous fiction, humorous fits of poetry and long scathing emails to payment-defaulting customers. He is currently working on his first book while not losing his mind in Pune peak hour traffic.
