I am a business historian by choice, a journalist by training, a writer at heart, and an accidental poet. I hold a Master’s in Global Political Economy from London School of Economics and Political Science.
I led digital for two News Corp startups in India, where I built high-performance teams, founded brand studios, and leveraged content to create high growth digital news products. I worked with India’s leading newspapers, reported and broke stories from the field on terrorism, crime and civic and political unrest; and wrote long reads on political economy, culture, caste, inequality, business, and economic and social policies, among others.
I have chased depth and fresh learnings every few years of my life, and today, from the time-tested place of curiosity and adventure, I am researching the long-run evolution of Indian capitalism across the 20th century. I am passionate about building or contributing to new ventures / perspectives / areas of knowledge, writing across genres, and travelling solo.
On weekends, I chase stories, I daydream, I hike, and relentlessly write.
