I worked as a reporter and sub-editor at Civil Society Magazine. I reported extensively on education, gender, labour and businesses. Reporting across beats allowed me to make connections across domains and report with a broader perspective.

Civil Society was launched in 2003 to tell stories of changemakers who shape the country in small but significant ways.

Here are some stories I’m really proud of:

Bold new music by Azadi Records

Restaurants in a locked down world

‘How can you run a school online?’

Big campus upsurge: How students connect

Aishe Ghosh: ‘JNU is worth fighting for’

Shadipur gets its own theatre festival
