Books. History. Food. Etc.
I began my career as a feature writer at The Times of India in Mumbai. More than a decade later, when I moved to the US, I was Books Editor and a Senior Editor in charge of the Feature section.
From the US, I continued to edit the culture pages of The Times of India Crest edition until the paper closed in 2013.
I now freelance on literature, history and food for several publications including the New Yorker.com, Paris Review Daily, Harper's.com, Los Angeles Review of Books, NPR, Forbes Life India, The Economist.com, and The Guardian.
My articles have often been featured by prestigious blogs such as the Arts & Letters Daily.
I guest lecture at the University of Tennessee's Journalism School on how to make it as a freelance journalist.
In 2013, I was selected as a Gabriel Garcia Marquez Cultural Fellow and spent two marvelous weeks in Colombia retracing the footsteps of my literary hero.
