Samrat Samrat is an engineer gone astray. His wanderings have taken him from his home in Shillong to journalistic stints in Vadodara, Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Apart from reportage, he writes short stories, essays and graphic novellas, some of which have been published in English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. He is currently experimenting with rap lyrics before the critical eyes and ears of his cat, Chairman Miao.
