Murli Melwani taught English Literature at Sankardev College, Shillong, India, before making a mid-career change to head an export company in Taiwan. He moved to Plano, Texas, after 25 years in Taiwan.
His short stories have been published in magazines in various countries, including the U.S.A, Hong Kong, and India.
He is the author of A collection of short stories: Stories of a Salesman, 1967 (a second edition appeared in 1979); A Play in Three Acts, Deep Roots, 1973; and Themes in Indo Anglian Literature, 1973. His blog is http://indianshortstoriesinenglish.blogspot.com.
His book of literary criticism, Themes in the Indian Short Story in English: An Historical and a Critical Survey (abbreviated TSSE:AHCS), was published in 2009 to favorable reviews. There have been calls to bring this book up-to-date with reviews of collections of Indian short stories in English published between 2007 and the present. He cannot give the sort of commitment he did in the past to researching and writing TSSE:AHCS, but is still passionate about promoting Indian short stories written in English. Hence this website. It has been set up to encourage others to read and review short stories published since 2007. Contact Murli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
