I am a Lawyer, specialized in Public International Law and Human Rights, Gender and Peace and Conflict. A graduate of the School of Excellence in Law, Chennai, I have diversified into Research and Writing in Public International Law, Arbitration and Human Rights, besides Freelance Journalism. I graduated from UPeace, Costa Rica, with a Masters Degree in Peace and Conflict. I work as a UN Volunteer, specializing in Human Rights research in pertinence to issues in Africa, India and Central Asia and the Middle East. I have worked extensively with grass root organizations that focus on women's rights, and also run a journal and consultancy that focuses on International Law, called A38, with my Brother.

I hope someday that the world will be an arena beset with Gender Equality, and until then, the fire in my stomach will continue to burn.

Dear Kirthyjay, 

As a gender equality seeker I feel some times that, conscious or not, I have supported gender opresion "rules and structures" occasionaly. I'm glad to have you and all the other members of the World Pulse community as champions and reality check partners! The fire inside us need to keep burning until the opresion structures are burn down. Thanks for sharing your journey and hard work.

Thanks for making of this planet a better place for all! I'm inspire by your work and passion.
