Besides literature, I am deeply interested in theatre and world cinema, and I have enjoyed doing workshops on drama, acting and cinema both in India and Canada. I also teach courses on performance and film studies, which I really enjoy. Yes, I do spend loads of time at the TIFF and Stratford, but I am not one of those academics who are confined to the classics, since I am equally interested in mainstream/popular art – all kinds of music and films from ‘Bollywood’ to Hollywood. I also used to be a full time runner during my school/college days in New Delhi, and I still love to go for a jog all the time. As a freelance journalist, I have written on films and sports for newspapers, Britannica etc. I'm passionate about my career but I definitely make time for relaxing as well.
I am looking for someone who is lively, fun, passionate about her work. Someone who will effortlessly drink a few litres of coffee with me, and happily pretend to smile and look interested when I make nonsensical connections between Shakespeare and hmmmm……!!!!
