I tell human stories.
As a reporter, copywriter, and podcaster, my work is invested with empathy. Through Kajal and my other projects, I seek to document the lived experience of the South Asian diaspora.
I am primarily concerned with ethnographic documentation, health care justice, women’s rights, and immigration. I write, edit, design, film, and do social media for news stories and marketing campaigns.
Print volumes of Kajal are sold in book stores located in Mumbai, New York City, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Stockholm. Kajal Vol II, which I curated and edited, is currently in the Getty permanent archives.
