Bio

Mumbai, 2022

I am the Head of Learning & Community at Bound, a storytelling company based out of Mumbai. I have conducted creative writing classes for brands like Mastree by Unacademy, Peppercontent, Teach for India and others. 

In 2015, I began my career as a journalist with Gulf Daily News, Bahrain’s national newspaper. My background in HR and my passion for stories have led me to interview over 100 talented writers like Amitav Ghosh, Sonia Faleiro, Amitava Kumar, Diksha Basu and others. Books and Beyond with Bound, the author interview podcast I co-host, ranks in the top 1.5% of podcasts globally.  

My poetry chapbook Gulf was published in 2021. My work has appeared in Eclectica, Litro UK, Berfrois, The Bombay Literary Magazine, Out of Print and others. I have been longlisted for prizes like the TOTO Award for Creative Writing, and the DNA-Out of Print Short Fiction Contest.

I am an alumna of the Seagull School of Publishing, Calcutta. Having over ten years of experience in the literary industry, I aim to make writing and publishing as accessible as possible. I want to mentor and inspire as many South Asian writers as I can to own their authentic experiences and undo their stereotypes in storytelling.
