Making of stories
Here are a few stories that are close to my heart. Even though I’m technically an editor, I’ve always found time to write simply because I love to. During my stint at Bombay Times in the mid 1990s as Associate Editor of News, I interacted with the likes of Shammi Kapoor and the Godrej family; and I also got to write about children suffering from the deadly HIV virus. The articles on health, aviation and photography were done as a freelancer in Singapore, for various publications. Recently I edited a coffee-table book for a Singapore school. In between I worked as Features Editor at rediff.com in Mumbai and Consumer & Lifestyle Editor at Simply Her in Singapore. Kolkata, Mumbai, San Francisco, Singapore – it’s been quite a long journey.
