A poet at heart she says there are times she has more ink in her veins than blood. She has been published worldwide in print and online magazines, journals, newspapers and periodicals. She was invited to the SAARC Literature Festival 2010 and 2011 and has also taken part in various other spoken word events. Her debut anthology Words Not Spoken published by Brown Critique/Sampark was published in November 2013.
She lives in Mumbai, India. She loves houses surrounded with trees, hammocks, sunlight filtering in mildly, the sound of chirping sparrows and a pot of Darjeeling tea sitting on a cane table. Other than that she loves the color green.
