I am an independent multiple award-winning journalist and a documentary photographer based in India’s Maharashtra state. In the past five years, I have been honored with fifteen national and international journalism awards and have received three prestigious fellowships. 

My work has been featured in more than 30 national and international publications, including MIT Tech Review, Devex, Food Unfolded, Yes Magazine, Johns Hopkins University’s Global Health Now, The Daily Beast, Verge, USA Today, Baffler magazine, Progressive Magazine, Scroll, Indian Express, Christian Science Monitor, British Medical Journal, Equal Times, Fansided. 

I’ve been extensively reporting on climate change, floods, mental health, human-wildlife conflict, agrarian crisis, vanishing livelihoods, and several other subjects through the lived experiences of everyday people.

I am also the Co-Founder of Insight Walk – a non-profit that offers teaching fellowships to rural community women. These women work with children of their villages to ensure every child has access to the contextual education of their choice. At Insight Walk, every student chooses their learning by designing their own syllabus.
