I am a freelance writer and an author in the making.
I graduated as an architect and worked for few years in an architectural firm as an interior designer. However I left the job and traveled across India with my husband who was serving in Indian Air Force till a year ago before taking a voluntary retirement. Currently I have made home in Pune, Maharashtra.

My story on ‘Behrupiyas’ in The Quint was awarded a special mention jury award by Red Ink Awards of Mumbai Press.
I love to write about travel, architecture, heritage, culture, food, environment, wildlife, women’s issues, books and personal narratives. I am trying to explore science and history realted stories as well.
I dabble also in photography, art, illustration, poetry, fiction(just about), translation from Hindi to English and vice versa. When I am not writing or painting I indulge in baking and crafting candles and chocolates.
It has been three successful years of freelancing. I also maintain a travel blog where I share my experiences from national and international trips.
