Hey there! This is Hemant. On this website, you’ll find my short stories and essays.

Here’s a brief introduction of what I write:

Short stories

I write short stories to explore how the world is changing because of technology. I believe that every person has a unique story, and by placing people in unusual circumstances, we get new stories. Read more about why I write short stories here.


Digital Nervous Breakdown

I’ve published one book – Digital Nervous Breakdown, which is available online. The book was my first ever attempt at writing fiction for publishing, so getting it published felt like a dream. The book explores the question – ‘What if the entire world was a database and it got hacked?’

My next book (a collection of short stories) :

From childhood, I have always been fascinated by drivers of any and every kind. They move me (no pun intended).

My next book, a collection of 25 short stories, is a tribute to taxi drivers. Taxi drivers make for interesting conversations, and that is the genesis of this book. I hope to have it published by the end of 2019.


I also write essays exploring how technology is changing lives at a macro level. Sportskeeda. To hear more about changes happening around us, subscribe to my newsletter. I send an e-mail every week.
