I smash the patriarchy for a living. Educator, writer, activist & translator. Occasional Surpanakha. One woman army. Non bra-burning feminist (because they are freakin’ expensive, duh)!
On a less arty note..
I am a former M.Phil research scholar at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Though an expert in German Studies, I am very much interested in women, men and gender studies, politics and social inequalities. I am a feminist and supporter of LGBTQI… As a writer I believe in fighting back and I hope to bring a change, even if on a small-scale. I like to learn languages and next on my list are Spanish and Punjabi. I’m an avid reader, I have a catalog of my personal collection and I like to lend out books to friends and dear and near ones. I would like to open a public library-bookshop-café one day. I would also like to see myself as an educator, a social activist and a writer. I want to write feminist short stories for young children and want to publish a book on gendered language. Let’s see!
I am the Founder & Editor-In-Chief of Feminism In India.com, a social movement to learn, educate and develop a feminist consciousness among the youth. It is required to unravel the F-word and demystify all the negativity surrounding it. It aims to serve as India’s first feminist portal for resource & documentation purposes for everything related to feminism in India and a new media community platform for people to break their silence and raise their voices. The platform deals with themes like feminism, women, gender, sexuality, intersectionality and brings forth the minority, marginalized and powerless voices.
On the Travel section:
Been to over 14 countries. Next travel destination: Vietnam. Current mission: to visit as many place as I can while still in my twenties and have a friend from each country. I am not your regular photographer who has a Facebook page. I am not a professional. I don’t even own a SLR for that matter! I am just a traveller who likes to click and share some little stories, incidents or anecdotes attached to a photo or many.
I eagerly wait for feedback and I approve all comments regardless if they agree with me or not. I hope you enjoy as well as learn something from my posts. I also would like to learn something from you in return. Happy reading! 🙂
