Zerine holds a postgraduate degree in English Literature which she followed up with a brief stint in teaching English to high school kids. She later left home to explore opportunities that set her on a corporate career as an HR professional. She continued to pursue her career in the north Indian city of Gurgaon, far away from her home state, Assam. During this time, she settled down to start a family. Years later family compulsions beckoned her back to her state where she currently resides in the north-eastern city of Guwahati, Assam, India. Zerine derives her calm from slow living and seeking beauty in the everyday mundane, often indulging in daydreaming and getting lost in it. She reads whatever she can lay her hands on but is mostly drawn towards literary fiction, often crafting her own short stories, essays, articles, and poems.
