The Business of Business Writing
The (Not So Simple) Business of Business Writing by Preeti Bansal Years of trying my hand at different forms of writing (yes there are academic, technical, personal, creative, etc., etc., etc.), and failing at some and not doing so well at others, I sort of developed an affinity towards, a knack for, and created a niche in, ‘Business writing’ (I think my 6 years of work experience in Corporate public relations might have something to do with it though). While the vocabulary used for all these types of writing might be similar (except for industry-specific jargon), they differ greatly in [...]
Women in the workforce
Desperately seeking a future for women in the workforce by Aditi Seshadri The best book I’ve read this year is the cleverly titled Desperately Seeking Shah Rukh by Shrayana Bhattacharya, a book that seems like it’s about the star power of Shah Rukh Khan but is, in fact, a powerful, insightful commentary into the lives of women in India post the 1990s navigating life and society and the quest for love, choice and freedom.

From girls in hijabs to men who cook, it takes collective action to break the bias by Aditi Seshadri As I reflected on this year’s International Women’s Day theme, my first thought went to the hijab controversy that erupted in India at the start of 2022. Even though Covid was surging through a third wave, several parts of the country went to vote, and the world was holding its breath over a possible war, the hot topic of the season, yet again, was women’s clothes and how they choose to express their identity. When girls are being prevented from [...]
Find your inner tiger
In this new year, we might just need to find our inner tiger by Priya Thachadi One of the biggest highlights for me in 2021 (or ever) was seeing the majestic tiger at the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan, India. My family and I were in an open jeep accompanied by an experienced guide and driver, whose unmatched passion for conservation, helped us maintain distance and etiquette, making sure we were not disrupting the calls of the wild, as far as possible. The guide had spotted a recent kill at a location and bet that the tiger would be [...]
