About Me

Journalist based in Mumbai. Known as ‘Bookworm’ when younger. Things haven’t changed much since I got older. I would much rather read a book than talk to people.

  1. Hi Pooja,

    I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper (www.theviewspaper.net) which is India’s largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

    We are organizing the World’s Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

    From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

    Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. Weโ€™ve got it all, and more. Weโ€™ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized โ€“ but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

    It is our nationโ€™s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

    A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, weโ€™ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and thatโ€™s where you come in.

    We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

    If you’re interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

    I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Some heavy stuff you’ve got there! One of these days, I’m going to sit down with a mug of pipping hot coffee and read all your entries. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I always wanted to be a journalist and even got accepted in D.U. for the course but chickened out at the last minute. You’ve inspired me, woman!
    Great work. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Dear Pooja,

    I don’t particularly know you. And I’m sure you don’t know me either. But I came across your blog while pretending to work. And I thought I might leave you a ‘nice blog’ kind of comment somewhere. Thought this was the best place to do it instead of one of the posts – which, by the way, are all very well written and insightful.

    I’ve only just started writing a blog about nothing-in-particular. Great to see yours.


    • Thanks a lot, Kabir! Your kind words are just what I needed to get working on the blog again. As you might have noticed, I haven’t written here in about 2 months. So thanks!

      • Hey, no sweat, Pooja! I’d be glad if my words would egg you on even in the least. It’s good stuff you’ve been writing. Be a pity if you stopped or, as we all do from time to time, got busy with other stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚
