I write long-form, narrative non-fiction, blog about key issues in political economy and help run startups.
I have put people in stories for over a decade, starting with it at a time India media was still discovering the virtues of long-form and enterprise reportage. My assigned beats implored the journalist in me to break stories. Yet, my obsessive quest to talk about people in my stories led me to report on bomb blasts, true crime and violent caste agitations in India with the richness of layered narrative frameworks.
In the past, I have worked as a Long Form and Enterprise writer with Mint, The Indian Express, and Hindustan Times and written on policy, politics, political economy, identity politics, gender, Muslim education, health, culture, and true crime. My focus currently is on exploring stories on the political economy of development, international trade and the China shift in the world economy. I also have a ringside view of running startups as I have been in critical roles with a number of high-growth startups.
I was a scholar at the London School of Economics where I studied International Trade, Economic History of India and East and Southeast Asia and Political Economy of Development as part of the M.Sc. programme.
