From Mumbai |
It began on a rainy afternoon in 2007 during my TYBCom. A chance glimpse at a newspaper ad seeking teenage journalists did it. Soon, I was freelancing as a campus reporter for Just Like That, a youth magazine by the TOI Group. And then there was no looking back.
In the decade since, I’ve worked as a content junior at a digital agency, ghostwritten medical literature for a homoeopathy clinic, and appeared for the CAT and NMAT. But a freelance travel-planning gig in the interim made me realize my true love—full-time writing—so I gave up my MBA dream to pursue my calling.
I’m grateful to have spent three years each in the editorial departments of Spenta Multimedia and Condé Nast India. And when life and spondylosis happened, I went full-time freelance and penned my first book, PiKu & ViRu.
My work has been featured in Condé Nast Traveller, Architectural Digest, JetWings, Navneet NewsHouse and Film Companion, among others, with travel, lifestyle, cinema, relationships, and children’s literature being my interest areas. I’m also in the process of creating a bank of screenplays and concepts. I edit trade books too, with Westland being one of my publisher clients.
