Lakshmi Chaudhry

I founded Broadsheet Daily and earlier co-founded Firstpost.com. My past work life includes working and writing for lots of places, including Wired, the Nation, Vogue, Columbia Journalism Review etc.

As for the rest, I live with a badly behaved menagerie that includes one child, two dogs and a boyfriend—who test my superhuman patience every day. They are all alive and accounted for…as of now.

Sara Varghese

I graduated from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai in 2020 all set to join the big bad world of news. But then Covid happened and time stood still, until I landed this wonderful opportunity at splainer.

If I'm not at work chances are I’m either baking for family or endlessly scrolling through social media. My most ridiculous pandemic feat: moving across the country twice!

Vagda Galhotra

I am a lawyer having done some strictly legal work before this — litigation, legal policy, corporate law, you name it. Previously worked at the Supreme Court, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy and P&A Law Offices.

As an independent researcher drawn to journalism, I’m at splainer to preserve our collective sanity. When not working, I am learning the piano very slowly, worshipping Olivia Laing or dabbling in some other form of art.

Anushree Kaushal

I was an editor at Penguin Random House India for over five years, and am now a freelance editor. I studied international relations and security, and consequently spend a lot of time reading about and researching real-life espionage tales. I love murder mysteries, a well-delivered joke, and all things Russia.

I’ve been spending the past year quizzing and studying beekeeping, and hope to continue both these pursuits indefinitely. If things went my way, I’d play a lot more tennis and sing aloud more often.

Surabhi Shukla

I recently completed my media and entertainment degree from Welingkar Institute of Management and dived straight into the exciting and dynamic world of splainer as a trainee.

I'm a pop culture nerd and when not obsessing over the latest film or TV show, I can be found nestled in some corner of my house with a book and a cup of mint tea. If you're also a little bit existential and little bit dramatic, we'll get along just fine!

Samreen Faridi

I just completed my bachelors in Mass communication and this wonderful opportunity at Splainer popped up. I jumped at the chance to express my creativity and keep up with the news as well! Splainer kept me sane through the pandemic when the rest of the world was driving me insane!

Fun and drama are major parts of my life and I aim to make a career which is not only about work, for the saying is, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” isn’t it?
