About Me: 

I am a journalist-researcher, aspiring writer, compulsive traveller, practising development consultant on media and communication. I live and work in India, and am currently based in Lucknow, capital of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous State.
A footnote on the long-winding title I've given my journal: 'Discovery of India', was the classic written by Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister, during the years he spent in prison (1942-46) for his involvement in the Quit India movement. The book gives an overview of Indian history, philosophy and culture through the centuries. It was adapted into a television series Bharat Ek Khoj by Shyam Benegal in the 80s. 'My Experiments of Truth' is Gandhi's autobiography. So my journal then is my own discovery of India -- its history, philosophy, culture, through a contemporary modern lense. A travelogue of sorts. As a student of yoga, it is also an attempt to contemplate my own experiments with truth: The wisdom that guides all we do; the values that are eternal, the norms that must change as we evolve as a society.
