Born in the land of Royal Bengal tigress, Somma was tamed in the hooter driven steel city of Jamshedpur. At the dawn of the 21st century, Somma suddenly stumbled into the wonderland of digital world through the rabbit hole of an era, sans Internet, and thus, the adventure began. Now, if she is not kidding around with her long-lost-found-again-if-you-don’t-mind-it-doesn’t-matter-aged friends in social media, or penning down soul searching, pensive poems on a rainy day or a solo train journey, she writes serious and not-so-serious content for the digital space as a freelance Feature Journalist and blogger. She penned near about 100 features and stories on a gamut of topics from lifestyle, social and business issues to social entrepreneurship, amazing entrepreneurs and personalities. Her unassuming, conversational interview skills make people – be it celebrities or commoners - spill the beans along with bytes for the topic. Her decade plus writing experience also includes writing for print media such as the Times of India Group, ABP Group and the Indian Express Group. She has worked as an in-house business writer in a corporate communication management company and as an entertainment web content writer in a renowned television channel company.
Since last 8 years, besides writing, Somma has been networking with the handicraft master craftsmen and women from various craft regions across India and curating appreciation workshop and other events with them to promote and nurture heritage craft and folk art of India.
Her shrunken Mumbai nights are spent dreaming about Mitti – her initiative for Indian Handicrafts that takes you back to your roots.

The Indian society has a stereotypical notion in place when it comes to stepmoms. It is time, we stop glorifying or stereotyping the concept of 'step mom' and stop the judgement.
