Dhaleta Surender Kumar
Surender Dhaleta is the Editor of e27. Hailing from Shimla, India -- the backdrop of much of Rudyard Kipling's 'Plain Tales from the Hills', this 'poet at heart' journalist brings over 16 years of writing; and 13 years of journalism experience to Asia's tech industry. Prior to e27, Surender, or Suren – as he is better known in the region – has edited Pitch, the leading marketing magazine in India, from the exchange4media stable, for four years. He has also been part of the Editorial Team of afaqs!, the world's second largest online platform for media, marketing and advertising. He is also former Founder of himvani.com, an online thinktank – a site founded way back in 2005, when internet was just taking roots in India – to influence government policies through collective governance for the state of Himachal Pradesh. The site, since his exit in 2009, has moved on to become one of the leading news websites for the state. Mysticism intrigues him. He enjoys reading folklore and mythologies – a passion that reflects in his poems and lyrical short-stories.
