Starting out as a freelance writer

I started writing for Deccan Herald as a freelance writer. And here is my first article. :) This appears in the Education supplement of today’s paper.

I will continue to write for the paper. If any of you have anything that you would like me to write about, please feel free to email me – chitra[_]aiyer[@]yahoo[.]com .

  2. Thanks Gopal. :)

  3. Excellent….Congratulations, and all the best.

  4. Which according to you is a better option? Your art is good but there’s so much info that I am confused..

  5. Brilliant article Chitra….But I feel its to difficult to decide which is the best…….Iam so eager to know what you chose for your kids.

  6. Thanks Mahipal. :)

    JD, like I said in the article, I dont think there really is that “one” better option. Each has its own pluses.
    Are you on Flickr, JD?

    Shyamala, thanks. :) There really is nothing that is the best, at least that is what I think. We chose a school that happens to adhere to the CBSE syllabus. We went by the school and not really by the syllabus.

  7. Great article .Very lucid and informative.
    I loved the unprejudiced way you presented it.
    And short of being repetitive……..WAY TO GO GIRL :))

  16. hey, great going! Chitra, I have my SIL who’s in Business World who wants me to write articles pretty often, which I do most of the times. But due to lack of time many times, I have refused. Do you think I can refer you to her?

  17. Thnaks Shilpa, Shalini.

    FB, ok. :) When u take up photography seriously, flickr is a good place to start it off. :)

    Yeah Poppins, was me. Why is the topic close to your heart?

  18. Hello Chitra! Have you tried for this new site called iwriter? (www.iwriter.com) I have been doing for the last month and earned nearly 100$. I too have written freelance for Deccan Herald a few years ago. Can you help me in writing for them again?
    Thank you and best wishes
