Mumbaiboss.com, the popular online news and culture magazine, sent me to check out Mumbai’s first-ever Comic Con. The goal was to meet the superheroes amongst the mere mortals. Even though graphic novels and comic books are not my thing, I left Comic Con energized and simple happy. What makes my job fun is meeting people […]

~ On Assignment: The New York Times, Rural Banking ~

~ On Assignment: Bloomberg, The Day After Mumbai Blasts ~

The majority of whom sleep in slums, shanties or on the street. The Times of India’s July 14th headline exclaimed: YET AGAIN. In two words […]

~ On Assignment: Monocle Magazine, Mukesh Mehta ~

I recently spent a morning with Mukesh Mehta, a private real estate developer appointed adviser to the Government of Maharashtra to redevelop Dharavi, one of Mumbai’s largest slums. Slum redevelopment has become a polarizing issue in Mumbai, often times dividing the developer, residents, business owners and non-profits from each other. Mehta’s challenge is to find […]

I had the pleasure to team up with New York Times reporter Vikas Bajaj on a story about a proposed 9,900 MW Nuclear Plant along India’s Konkan coastline. I think no matter where I go, there will always be an energy story to cover – from coal mines in Appalachia to hydrogen-fuel cell SUVs in […]
