Published Works

A composite of some of the work that has been written and published under my name; as well as some copy I have had the chance to hold through:

Work at AskMe.com:

Writings and editorial work at AskMe is evenly spaced around education, parenting, wellness as well as news copies around Fashion. The major stay remains editing copy, publishing and back-end operations (anything from vendor management to processes, invoicing to tech interventions), leaving little time to write at leisure. Still, here is a selection of some of my work:

Work at Shine.com:

While the work at Shine.com was largely behind-the-scenes and consisted of working on the social profile, I did manage to do a few industry profiles and an in-house blog:

Healthcare & Medical industry

Work at Indian Express:

Description: News copy, analysis, self copies, a touch of first-hand reporting – the years spent with the Indian Express shaped how I thought of news, writing and added structure, stylesheet discipline and diction to my skillsets. Most of the bylines (2009-2012) are now offline, though I still carry the hard copies or edit files.

Area of work: Current Affairs – Wrote (with bylines), edited (both under Staff Writer and Indian Express) and contributed otherwise (Tweets, FB updates, YouTube descriptors, Special Microsites and coverage for in-house events) for the organisation over a span of four years (Two in internship included).
