Welcome to my online home!

Hey there! This is Hemant R Joshi. The world around us is changing so rapidly with the internet, which is barely 30 years old. I write stories about how our lives are fundamentally changing with technology.

I’ve written 2 books, 20+ essays, 50+ short stories and countless rough drafts.

On this website, you’ll find my books, short stories and essays. Happy reading πŸ™‚

The Advisory Board:

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

My second book, a collection of 25 short stories, is a tribute to taxi drivers. Taxi drivers make for interesting conversations and can provide some of the best advice in the world.

Digital Nervous Breakdown

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?’

The book won the ‘Views and Vistas’ competition by Vishwakarma Publications, Pune in 2015.

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 are exposed to the best ones. Read more about why I write short stories here.

I started writing a short story newsletter in January 2020. It has stories from startups, which are inspired by startup fundamentals from YC, Paul Graham and others. Check it out here.

Essays

I also write essays exploring how technology is changing India at a macro and a micro-level. Every week, I dive deep into one product and write about how many more opportunities have been created. Subscribe to my newsletter to get my essays every week.
