Hi there! This is Torque Earnest 🙂
I started writing for the web medium some time back and wrote for many websites. I have been a science student, studied Maths, Physics & Information Technology in my junior college and then shifted my stream of education to Arts because of career reasons. Although I was interested in the Science subjects I did not want to see myself pursuing a career in it.
Studied English language & literature to be able to prepare well for national level examinations to get into my country, India’s military administration. I belong to a small place and have been brought up humbly. Shifted base to a city known for its education and cultural values for graduation and further studies.
While doing my graduation I appeared for the national public service examination for getting into the Indian Army. Qualified for the same but for some reasons known to the military I was not taken in after going through the necessary rounds of selection.
So, I continued with the fall back option of having a meaningful career, Journalism and discovered to my rude surprise that the so called ‘free press’ does not quite exist. Before getting into the online media, I chose to intern with one of the only two government news agencies, the United News of India (UNI) rather than working for brand names that would give me an instant shot of fame, the byline.
After successfully completing and trying yet another time for the Defence services I thought of backing up my Journalism career option with studying Law.
In the meanwhile I was introduced to content writing. A friend’s friend heard of my writing, my stint with investigative journalism and invited me to work with him. From then I have written around 3000 articles on legal, medical, educational topics.
So, that’s my story so far 🙂 Feel free to get in touch with me on firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact form. My work keeps me little occupied hence I usually respond within a week, if not sooner.
