I am Dr. Shivani Salil, an MBBS with an MD in Clinical Microbiology who till recently was working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology at Seth GSMC & KEM Hospital, Mumbai. My foray into writing began in 2017 and blogging was my first step towards it. A geographical move in 2018 seemed heaven sent as I am now making full use of this sabbatical to explore where my words take me. Writing has brought me peace, wisdom and a heightened sense of self awareness. I write on a broad spectrum of issues, from parenting to health and relationships to philosophy in both fiction and non fiction format, across various platforms like Momspresso, Women’s Web and Mumbai Psychiatry Clinic to name a few. This has also fetched me awards and recognition. I also have a weekly space on the online portal, The Wonder Women World, called Saturdays With Shivani. I try to connect with my day-to-day observations, experiences and musings hoping that they find their way to the readers, in a style that is simple but not simplistic. I would describe myself as a proponent of gender equality in the true sense who believes feminism is an attitude that both the genders need to have if they want to make this world a better place. I value truth and honesty above all else and chase sunsets for the sheer joy of it!
