Bangalore, India

'Lite, Camera, Ficion' is a compilation of the Facebook posts of Chhotoo Ghadge, who has written more than 100 posts to date. He is a prolific and compulsive writer, who keeps the inspiration going, sometimes burning midnight oil and staying up till 2 and 3 am in the morning.

So he sums it up with the verse: 'Main pal do pal ka writer hu (part-time) Masroof zamana mere liye Kyu waqt apna barbaad kare'?
