An avid learner & seeker of knowledge.My area of interest lies in observing national policies, their implementation as well as impact on the society & women in particular. I’m passionate about writing, voicing my opinion & I’m an equally passionate advocate of women’s rights. A keen observer of social happenings, I write about life, its experiences & believe that sharing experiences are one of the best ways of generating awareness. As far as my academic career is concerned I did History Honours , Masters in Modern Indian History , M.Phil from Delhi University. I have also taught at the undergraduate level in the University of Delhi. Study of Gender & Society & colonial policies form an area of interest for me. I believe that there is no greater power than the power of knowledge & hence I wish to learn as much as I can in my lifespan.
