She started her career with The Asian Age in Mumbai before moving on to work with Channel [V], India Abroad News Service and Femina magazine in Delhi. She has travelled extensively both in India and overseas on work and holidays and is rather convinced that between the beach and mountains, she is a confirmed beach person. Since 2005, she has worked as a freelance writer in Bangalore, writing features focused on lifestyle, health, social issues and trends. She loves travel and photography, though these days, with two kids in tow, it's the diaper bag and not the camera that's her constant companion.She can be reached at
