“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” – Arundhati Roy
I am a freelance journalist, amateur parent, idea-generator and future bookseller currently based in Goa, India. My work has appeared in TIME, BBC, The Atlantic, Vice.com, Teen Vogue, The Telegraph UK, Roads and Kingdoms, Hakai, Silverkris, Marie Claire India, The Guardian Weekly, The National (UAE), Christian Science Monitor, The Asian Age, Deccan Chronicle, First Post, India Today Travel Plus, Home Review, Hindustan Times, Mint and DNA among others. I write about travel and culture, literacy, books and education, interiors, green issues and civic (non)sense but welcome enquiries for writing assignments on most topics.
I used to be a prolific poet, but that muse is currently on vacation. You can catch a glimpse of my occasional verse on my poetry blog – Verse Days of My Life. I blog about decor and interiors at Frangipani Decor.
I am also a bookcrosser and have been quoted/interviewed by several publications on the subject. I manage India’s first Official BookCrossing Zone (OBCZ), located at Panjim Inn, Goa and also a new one at the Bookstop Free Library at the Panjim Municipal Garden, which was based on a suggestion I gave. You’re welcome to send us books or say hello when in the area.

Thank you for visiting. Stay awhile!
