About

I have lived and worked in eight countries in the past eight years. From 2015, I have divided my time between the UK and Tunisia. Before that, I was in the UAE, Haiti, the US, Afghanistan and India. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce and a member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the UK’s National Union of Journalists.

I have written for:  The Guardian/ The Economist/ Ozy/ Christian Science Monitor/ Foreign Policy/ The New York Times/ Newsweek Daily Beast/ Hindustan Times/ The National/ The Arab Weekly

I started with The Times of India newspaper in Delhi, was editor of Rupa and HarperCollins India and then took up broadcasting with the BBC World Service in London. I presented ‘The World Today’, BBC World Service’s flagship news and current affairs programme. I was subsequently The Times of India’s Foreign Editor based in London. I was editor of The Sunday Times of India, based in Delhi.

I guess I’d best be described as an Anglo-American Indian! Of US, UK nationality and Indian ethnicity.
