THE STORY OF THE PEN PERSON
Fountain Pen Geek, IT professional, and Visiting Professor
WHO AM I?
My name is Sudhir Kalyanikar. I have a day job as an IT professional. I also take lectures in Marketing for MBA students as a visiting faculty.
HOW AND WHEN DID I GET INTO PENS?
I started collecting pens in the early 1990s and have been an avid and passionate fountain pen enthusiast ever since.
WHEN DID I START PEN REPAIRS?
I started repairing my own pens first when they started to misbehave, then just to test the limits of what I could do, and then, because I got good at it.
I started with repairing pens for friends at local meets, which grew to a clientele based across India and before I knew it, I was offering these services to a much wider audience.
WHAT ARE MY OTHER INTERESTS?
In my non-pen life I am interested in Wet Shaving, Watches, Books, Audio Stuff, Coffee, Single Malt, Beer (and not necessarily in that order, or any order, really).
I love dogs (and cats too, sort of) and I’m really a confused soul in pursuit of inner peace through crass materialism; an anachronism.
