I have been a journalist for the last 16 years, working in newspapers like Asian Age, Hindustan Times and Times of India in Kolkata, India. When I moved to Dubai in 2007 I joined Masala!, the Bollywood magazine published by ITP Publishing, and became a hardcore Bollywood writer. But the arrival of my son Vivaan in March 2010 changed everything for me. I suddenly became a different person. I wanted to spend all my time with him, spend the twilight hours not in front of the computer in my office but on the sidewalk pushing around his pram and I also wanted to write all the things that I couldn’t write in my entire career as a journalist. I left my job, became a full-time mom, a freelancer, a blogger and also started working on my dream book. I always aspired to write on women and issues that touch all our lives, thanks to WordPress.com I am getting to do that.
I also want to thank all those who have gone through my writings and left their comments on the Blog or on Facebook. I hope my blog will make a difference in the way we perceive women – and men too.
My book Exit Interview has been published by Rupa Publications in May 2015 and is based on the life of fictional journalist Rasha Roy. The book is already getting rave reviews in national newspapers, websites and blogs.
