Based in Madurai, South India, I'm a freelance journalist with eighteen years of experience. My articles delve into a wide range of issues, exploring human rights, social justice, science, health, travel and culture.
My work has taken me on many an incredible journey through wild desolate caves that Jain monks once made their homes in, to ancient excavation sites in the heart of rural India and to the blinding heat of salt mines that are on the throes of climate change.
I have been published in The New York Times, National Public Radio (NPR), The Guardian, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, South China Morning Post, National Geographic Traveller, Reader’s Digest, the BBC and more. I believe in the power of bitter coffee and bright sunshine.
And for me, the most gripping stories are always the ones that are true to life.
