Hello there. My name is Zahid H Javali. I am a writer, editor and photographer all rolled into one. Primarily a print journalist since 1996, I have done just about everything under the publication sun — from working in dailies and weeklies to newspapers, magazines and websites. Some of them include Mint, The Man, The Sunday Guardian, Worldstart, SilverKris, M, Touchdown and Men’s Health, among others.
I am the Editor and Publisher of Residents Watch, a monthly neighbourhood guide on HSR Layout (Bangalore) and the co-author of Mind Blogs 1.0, a book of non-fiction, and the Festival Director of The Times of India Literary Carnival held in January 2014. More recently, I was featured in Tuhin A Sinha’s book, Daddy: The Birth of a Father. My experiences appear on countless occasions in the book on parenting brought out by Harlequin.
My last post was as the City Editor of MiD DAY, the daily tabloid that I helped start in Bangalore. Today, I run Write Wing Media that is into content marketing and custom publishing magazines and every form of communication material for publishing houses, corporates and individuals. That apart, I still freelance as editor/writer/photographer for publications in India and abroad.
I have had over 3000+ bylines in countless publications around the world. Some of them are in my Portfolio section on this blog. You can reach me at: zahidjavaliATgmailDOTcom. Happy reading!
