Lead Without Followers : Live From Within

After being a schoolteacher for a decade, I joined Print media as a free lancer.

As a freelance journalist
I wrote for publications like Times Of India, Mid-Day and portals like Rediff.com , Indian television.com,Bonoboloy.com and Gossipticket.com, besides others. . The diverse portfolio created over years, touches on almost every form of journalism consisting of reports, features, reviews, travelogues, profiles, and interviews. Human-interest stories elevating the status of underprivileged have been my favourite. It has led me to pen down a couple of stories for Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul series.

As an Editor I worked for a humour magazine, Film magazine and a Local News Weekly that was entirely my baby. It no doubt broadened my horizons but writing remains my first love.

Thereafter I fulfilled my dream of travelling and visited 35 countries in ten years, greedy as hell to soak it all in. It has been a rewarding experience, indeed.

My Strength
An honest and objective approach, quick grasping of various subjects, ability to examine all perspectives, listening skills to derive deep insights, knack to simplify complex inter-related issues, presentation in right form and words suiting the target audience.

When I am not writing or travelling, I pursue fitness and spirituality. Music and silence rejuvenate me. I am a happy single based in Mumbai and love to laugh and dance.
