"An academic, blogger and a cultural critic, in the pursuit of some learning and unlearning. Being sensitive & observant of the nuances around me and putting my thoughts into words, remains my passion. I extrapolate my thoughts for a deeper insight into things in general and gender dynamics in particular. Given the ponderous nature of my thoughts, my blog calls itself 'Pondering Pauses'.
