Thanks for visiting the Half-Eaten Mind.
The Mind (or HEM for short) is a news magazine and blog operating from a home office in the upcoming and multicultural districts of east London. We’re located in Plaistow, a short distance from the site of the London 2012 Olympics in Stratford.
The blog covers news and features from a local (London), national (British) and international perspective. We have no qualms about covering most subjects and forms of writing from hard news to ‘fluffy’ human interest stories. HEM also doubles as the personal blog of the editor – and occasionally and confidently forays into photography and basic graphic design.
Our stories are generally sourced from external sources but we also welcome contributions and suggestions from interested parties. You can send ideas, news stories, your own articles (republished with due credit and a byline), poetry, photography etc. at the email address below, or via the blog itself
HEM is owned and managed by Vijay Shah, a journalism graduate from the Class of ’06 at the University of Westminster in London and Harrow, Middlesex, England. Of mixed English & Indo-Mauritian origins, Vijay has dreamed of being a journalist since his secondary school days and has a flair for writing both fiction and non-fiction. He began the Half-Eaten Mind to help nourish and maintain his news-writing and prose skills, and since its establishment on the popular WordPress blogging platform in 2012, the blog has gone from strength to strength. When not blogging, he currently works as a database administrative assistant for Informa plc., a multinational company specialising in conferences, seminars, events and training courses. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, good food and television among other things.
He is the second oldest of three brothers and three sisters.
I would like to first thank God for giving the means and the abilities that helped bring this blog about. I also wish to thank all of the friends, family, contributors and our followers and blogging compatriots on WordPress whose support and belief have helped kept the Half-Eaten Mind chewing on the fat of the world of news.
