About Me

I am a Lawyer, specialized in Public International Law and Human Rights. 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 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, I run the Red Elephant Foundation - an initiative for civilian peacebuilding through storytelling. I enjoy art and writing fiction. 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.
