Books. History. Food, Tea. Etc.
I began my career as a feature writer at The Times of India in Mumbai. Over a decade, I rose to be Books Editor and a Senior Editor in charge of the Feature section.
In 2009 I moved to the US.
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.
I guest lecture at the University of Tennessee's Journalism School.
I am also invited by various groups to present TEA TALKS, since I contribute regularly to NPR's TEA TUESDAY column.
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.
