Profile Information

Vivek Pereira, a versatile and rebellious writer, hails from the peaceful, quite village on the eastern slopes of Pali hill. His family shifted out from Pali village when he was just three years old. Vivek still lives in Bandra, a beautiful suburb of Mumbai. He studied at St. Stanislaus High School and later at the M.M.K College of Commerce and Economics. His first poems were written when he was in college and they thrilled many of his classmates. One of them was written in response to a question on Fischer's Theory during the mid-term examination. He apologised to the professor who later read out the poem to all the classes she taught in. The ungrateful poet wrote another poem which criticised Economics big time in which one of the characters even suggested that people who studied Economics should be put in hell.

Vivek tried desperately to shake off the "Poet" tag and turned to religion or his warped version of it. He wrote outlanding short stories on heaven and hell mostly satirical and controversial in nature. Next, he wrote even more controversial commentaries on the hospitable nature of Mumbai, the menace of terrorism, the fate of the Indian woman, the Maoist rebellion, and such taboo topics. Leadstart Publishers have published his first book, Rose Gardens and MInefields in 2010 which is a compilation of his finest poems, short stories and essays. This book is available online on sites like Flipkart and at several bookstores in India.
