I Vijay Kumar Agarwal was born and brought up at Allahabad. Had initial education from St. Anthony's Convent, passed B.Sc. from Muir Central College, Allahabad University. Reading, writing and gardening are my hobby. Gardening I inherited from my mother, but lucky enough to be married to Mita, having large garden at her paternal home. She was a continuous source of inspiration to my gardening as such I owe my success to her.
