A gathering of aspiring writers at Chetan Mahajan’s (far right) Himalayan Writing Retreat

In 2014, Chetan Mahajan’s life was progressing on an envied path. He had a good corporate job with HCL Learning. His wife, Vandita, ran her own practice in clinical psychology from home. Their children attended Gurugram’s reputed Shikshantar school. They lived in a nice house in the gated community, Nirvana Country. To all appearances, a perfect life.
