I'm an independent researcher and author based in Gurgaon. I have a PhD degree in Social Medicine and Community Health. My work has been published in the Devex, Deccan Herald, The Telegraph, The Hindu and Asia Democracy Chronicles. For the last 12 years, I have worked with grassroots and international development organizations in community development, reproductive health, women's health, and education. In addition, I am currently writing a debut non-fiction book for HarperCollins India on last rites and rituals.
