I am Shripad Dharkar, a Doctorate in Food Technology from the University of Mumbai, India. During the course of long career of 60 years in the food industry, I was instrumental in developing a number of innovative packaged foods one of which is “MANGOLA”, a mango pulp drink which is the most popular mango drink in the Mumbai market. I was also closely involved in research in preserving of fruits and vegetables by Gamma Irradiation for which I was awarded the Doctor of Philosophy (Tech) by the University of Mumbai.
After calling my career a day, I started to write science fiction and other strange stories, which I would like to post in this blog. I do hope that my readers will come to appreciate the tales. Your feedback is very welcome.
