Dr. Arva Bhavnagarwala is a pediatrician based in Mumbai. She is attached to Masina Hospital, Byculla, as a consultant Pediatrician. She is on the Expert Panel at Firstcry.com. Arva has also found a place as a National Advisory Board Member of Indian Pediatrics, the official journal of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics.

In between seeing patients and being patient with her two boys, she manages to scribble a few words here and there. These words then form stories and she gets an adrenaline rush when the stories connect with the readers.

A few of her stories have found their place in various short story anthologies by various platforms like Women’s Web, eShe magazine and Room9 Publications by ArtoonsInn.

She also writes regularly at Momspresso and has won Top Blog Awards a few times. She also is a multiple Muse of the Month Contest winner, a monthly contest held by Women’s Web.

When not busy with her practice and writing, she loves to travel. Also, she is a voracious reader and can devour books, sometimes in one day, food and water forgotten.  She prefers chai over coffee and loves to eat biryani with potatoes in it. She hates liars and latecomers.
