Creating Stories From The Indian Social Media Space
Introduction
Took me 33 years to understand what the meaning of "Being Passionate". No wonder I was born late.

Anyway now I am the Founder and Social Media Blogger at Lighthouse Insights, a site that exclusively captures Indian Social Media News. Going further I want to turn it into Asian Social Media News.

I believe in sharing knowledge so I visit colleges to share my learning's on social media. I have a small dream of teaching hopefully my passion will me get there one day.

When I am not doing all this I am still blogging and looking for interesting stories. I love reading books, watching movies and discussing global politics with my wife.

If you think getting in touch will be a cool idea then do drop me a line at prasant@lighthouseinsights.in
