Born in an army family, I grew up enjoying India’s vivid heterogeneity. A passionate writer and storyteller from childhood, I loved sharing life’s musings based on my experiences. After completing schooling in The Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu, I graduated from Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Delhi and went on to pursue Bachelor and Master of Laws at Faculty of Law, Delhi University.
I began my legal career at the office of the Central Information Commissioner and then the Senior Standing Counsel to the Income Tax Department. I handled taxation law cases in tribunals and high courts, and argued matters in family courts. Moving into the corporate world in 2012, I spent four years with PricewaterhouseCoopers where I worked in Delhi and Mumbai with multinational clients.
In 2016, I made the big move from litigation to business writing and creative services. In a leadership role at Magenta, a Mumbai-based corporate communications consultancy, I headed the delivery of creative solutions including content planning and development of thought leadership assets for blue-chip giants.
Having worked in multiple roles for nearly a decade, I’m now actively pursuing my passion to write in the sub-genre of creative non-fiction, and speak at diverse platforms. I’ve presented snapshots of my speaking experiences over the last two years at As a Speaker.
I have a set of anchors that I call my ‘family.’ My father, an army man for life, is a blood donor (donated 102 times), seasoned writer on current issues, and social worker. With decades of teaching behind her, my mother mentors youth on the cusp of entering college. My husband, IIT Delhi and ISB Hyderabad alumnus, is a marketer in the fast-moving consumer goods sector. Donning the olive green, my brother spends the night of 31st December guarding the borders. My sister-in-law teaches, and motivates soldiers’ families. Together, they inspire me to be a good human being first, and anything else later.
