What defines me is my writing, I've solved murder mysteries, traveled far and distant places, and was even made the king of mysterious lands. I've also penned down a few articles on social topics. I look for a newer perspective and a different dimension as I try to study the topic by estranging the familiar and familiarising the strange. My writing and verbosity are unique and fresh-flavoured. As we know, the world will never run out of views, and I'm here to present mine by looking for the unexplored.
I am the founder of The Coin - - which is a platform where I write about social issues by estranging the familiar. Concepts as typical as patriarchy, caste system are also a part of my blog. I try to find the underlying theory behind these issues and simply present them. Many of my articles and thoughts have been covered by news channels as well.
One of my essays - The Schooling System - was selected to be published in the book - Pen to Paper, and I was nationally recognised as India's Top 20 Teen Writers. I was also declared as the Writing Champion at the World Scholar's Cup 2019 - National Round.

eArth Samvarta Foundation is a Section 8 non-profit company that works in the field of developing solutions in the field of environment, energy, and security. Our vision at eArth Samvarta Foundation is to achieve planet-first solutions in the age of the Anthropocene. Here, working as the research and reporting intern I was able to interact with the actual decision-makers of the nation and work towards the welfare of the street dogs. I did research on how after training dogs can work as security dogs or for HR development in offices. I did research and reporting on how stray dogs are valuable as community guards to help address that challenge of man-animal conflict. I also analysed how stray dogs are useful for stress management, especially at the workplace to improve employee productivity, human resource management, and work relationships.
