About Me

I am postgraduate in English with Communication Studies from Christ University, Bengaluru. I was a teacher in The International School Bangalore (TISB), Bengaluru for three years (2012-2015) and now am trying to pursue my Phd in Postcolonial Life Writing.

If Life writing enables people self-reflection and is therapeutical (as it is believed), and am able to trace it in this forum, then Life writing can be used as a small step towards the rehabilitation of prisoners, as well.

Imagine, diary entries of several people in one space! Imagine the variety in thought, style of expression, and incidents across borders. We might even be surprised to see similarity in events even though miles apart. This imagination becomes reality through WorldPulse!

My Vision

I would like to believe that being in a global and glocal world, we will have a number of stories to narrate because I definitely have plenty and the digital age has given us a lot of space to voice, even our silence. So, I hope to see “The Other Side of silence” (Butalia) through writings.
