Born in Mumbai, India, in 1959, Nilesh Chogle grew up in Girgaum and then in the western suburbs of Vileparle. He pursued careers in Finance, Foreign Trade, Procurement and SCM, serving in leading Pharmaceutical MNCs. Right from his childhood, he garnered a dream of becoming accomplished in fine arts and creative writing. However, he realized that he must end the daily dilemma of earning his livelihood.

He loves to sing nostalgic Hindi numbers, both pop and semi-classical, from the golden era of the Hindi film industry. He can be approached on Facebook and LinkedIn. His Twitter handle: @6chogs1.
