I have lived and worked in eight countries in the past decade.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce, an Associate Fellow of the UK’s Higher Education Academy and a member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, London, the National Union of Journalists, UK and the Society of Professional Journalists in the US.
I have written for, among others: The Independent/ 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, Editor of The Sunday Times of India, based in Delhi and Deputy Global News Editor of Quartz.
I’m a PhD candidate at the University of East Anglia and recently submitted my thesis.
I guess I’d best be described as an Anglo-American Indian! Of US, UK nationality and Indian ethnicity.
