An Honours graduate in Mathematics, Shweta did her Management course in Marketing from Bhopal in 2004. She planned to pursue a career in Civil Services, but after her marketing project with Hindustan Unilever, got inclined towards a career in the same field. She worked as the first female member, in the sales department of Airtel land line division. From there she moved to Electrolux in Pune. She grew in the field of marketing with Sakaal Media Group. From launching brands to managing them, she lived her dream as Brand Manager with Greenlime, Relispray, Spraymint and Prabhat Nutrition. She loved playing with words, to the extent that before solving a Math question she would write a poem. DARK WhITE has some funny incidents from real life that make it interesting, rest is fiction as she believes that imagination has no limit to creation.
