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 in Bangalore 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.
I've previously worked at Business Standard, HT, Times Now and Firstpost but my true passion lies in baking
sugar-free and refined flour free cookies and cakes for kids at @toddlerbaker.
Apart from that, my two-year old keeps me on my toes with DIY activities and mamma and toddler workout sessions.
I graduated from Vassar College last May with a degree in Psychology and Political Science, ready to change
the world one opinion at a time. My most treasured accomplishment is my undergraduate thesis, which is a
critical study of politics, feminism and dharma through the eyes of Draupadi!
The past year has been wild on the roller coaster ride that is the startup life. And it has been worth every minute...with the help of many cups of chai.
I belong to the unfortunate pandemic-afflicted batch of 2020 of IIT Bombay. While grumbling about my
cancelled plans and wondering if I will ever attend my convocation, I'm working at splainer learning all
about the crazy startup life.
When I'm not working, I'm either curled up in a corner with a book, or learning how to cook with my mother. My favourite uni achievement: becoming the secretary of our Literary Arts club, and organising quizzing and literary events.
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!
An almost computer science engineer, I am on the lookout for the meeting ground between my love for technology and
literature. As a freelance writer and full-time reader, I have found that inquisitivity is amongst my most innate
My perfect day involves time on my kindle, pizza slices and some sports screentime. I am always up for a conversation, especially if it's about how great Bangalore's weather is!
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.
