Ok, so we journalists, who have to live with the fact that today’s newspaper will end up as tomorrow’s tissue paper, and who have to observe the lakshman rekha drawn by editorial policies, and watch our stories get ruthlessly chopped for want of space, have no other way to assuage our bruised egos than publish a blog…

So here I am, a journalist previously based in Chennai putting all my published stories out here (in the hope of netting more readers) and also deluding myself of having immortalised my work thus, ‘cos the pages of the paper in which these appeared must have by now ended up in a maligai kadai to wrap your  groceries…

I am currently based in New Delhi, where I am working on a community media project at IIT.
