About the CA Blog:
The Creative Agni Blog is written by Shafali R. Anand. It’s a repository of her thoughts on instructional design, training, eLearning, and creativity. A thread of sublime humor runs through her posts, which may not surprise those who have interacted with her personally through her training programs and corporate workshops, yet to others it might reveal something new and unexpected.
The Creative Agni Blog with its non-traditional fare (Sloth & Froth comics, ID Fiction, Coffeebeans cartoons among others,) reignites creativity among those who shake their heads and say, “I know I am not very creative,” and fan the creativity of those, who nod passionately when asked whether they are creative. This blog illustrates purposeful creativity directed towards making the design and implementation of knowledge-transfer an experience to cherish.

Thanks for stopping by to read.
I find it difficult to describe the person that is me. When I received an Excellence Award at NIIT, they called me, “a whole-brain thinker.” I guess that’s what I am, except that the two sides of my brain don’t always see eye to eye. Among other stuff that I don’t talk a lot about are the facts: I am ambidextrous, I love science, I admire inventors and innovators, and if I have to ever identify a muse, I’d select Leonardo Da Vinci.
I studied to be an engineer, worked in the machine shop of a Steel Plant, decided to dropout of one of the premier MBA Schools in India only to join another, worked in publishing for some time; and then joined the eLearning industry, never expecting that I will be arrested in its thralls for ever.
I have been working in elearning development, content development, and training design & delivery for more than twenty years now. In 2004, I started Wavelength elearning where I spent six years designing, developing, and implementing Wavelength’s online courses and training programs as the Chief Instructional Architect and Facilitator of the ID programs. Those six years gave me the unique opportunity of experiencing, the entire CDLC first-hand. I had the unique opportunity to directly experience the audience psychology and their responses, through the Instructional Design courses and training workshops that I have facilitated and conducted.
I love to share what I know – through my writings and through the ID training workshops that I conduct. My alter ego however tries to overpower me by making me draw and forcing me to write fiction, which she emphasizes is better than facts.
I live in Noida, a suburb of New Delhi, which is now a city in its own right. I love to spend my spare time with my infinitely better half (who is substantially less forgetful than I am.) I also draw some and read a lot.
