I write, research, and help run startups. I am an economic historian by education, and writer of non-fiction. I am working on my first book.
In my work as a journalist, I have put people in stories at a time the Indian media was beginning to discover the virtues of long-form and enterprise reportage. I have reported on bomb blasts, true crime, business and political economy; policy, politics and identity politics; capitalism and globalisation; and violent social, political and social unrest in India with the richness of layered narrative frameworks. I have worked with leading Indian journalism publications Mint, The Indian Express, and Hindustan Times.
I have trained as an economic historian in New Delhi and London; and helmed critical leadership roles in marketing and audience engagement at some of India’s fastest-growing startups. I write newsletters, paint walls, embroider, knit, spring clean and highway-drive to de-stress – plus, love talking to strangers.
I am a bilingual writer – in the new year, I hope to start putting up my Hindi stories and essays on my old blog, STORY CELLAR ~ कहानी घर.
