For nine years till August 2016, I wrote a weekly column for Mint Lounge, an Indian business daily which is affiliated with the WSJ.  I also wrote columns for The National, based in Abu Dhabi.  I used to write the Hinduism column for Beliefnet.

I have written three books: Monsoon Diary and Return to India, that are available here.  My third book, Katha, is available here.

I have taught a course to the Executive Post Graduate Program at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore.  I have also taught sculpture at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore. I am a trustee of Neev Academy, Bangalore’s best preschool and school

A long time ago, I used to be a commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered Weekend.

My essay, The God of Small Feasts, that was published in Gourmet, won the James Beard Foundation’s MFK Fisher Award for Distinguished Writing.  Ruth Reichl, who got me into food writing was there at the awards ceremony, which gratified me greatly.  My first book, “Monsoon Diary: a memoir with recipes,” was published by Random House (US) in 2003.  It was a finalist for a James Beard Award.  Both awards referenced here.  Scroll down.

I graduated from the Columbia Journalism School with a Master of Science degree. The school awarded me a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship given to the top three graduating students in the class, which I used to travel to Israel.
