Hoping to make a change, one word at a time…
I am a freelance digital journalist and features writer, currently working with CNN International in London, discovering stories, especially from India for a western audience.
Hailing from London with extensive family from the vibrant city of Kolkata, I have a strong understanding of how the west views India, and how India sees itself.
I have been published by numerous media outlets, including CNN, the Guardian, the BBC and the Huffington Post. As well as writing about lighthearted topics, I am interested in exposing areas that are in dire need of change. What challenges are faced by this diverse subcontinent and future superpower, and what is inspiring reform?
From religion to sport and politics to travel, I have not only explored my motherland by foot, but by reflection too. My reporting, however, is not limited to India, having also covered women’s rights in Afghanistan and the debate on military intervention in Syria.
