Sandeep Sandhu was born and raised a Londoner, hailing from the prominent NRI outpost that is Southall. The town has certainly shaped his writing and perception of the world and continues to be a thriving cosmopolitan part of the city. More taken with literature and the arts, he quickly pursued these both academically and personally. You’re likely to see him providing social commentary on health and well-being, popular culture and the general cultural condition of being an NRI in London.
