Shiksha Jural


I hail from Uttarakhand. Having been born and brought up there, nature has been a great companion to me. It has inspired me in numerous ways, but amidst the valley, my heart longed for places that were beyond my little world. I felt an intense need to step out and seek knowledge.

When I eventually stepped out, I discovered the world was brimming with polarities. I was asked to take sides, but I refrained. I missed the simplicity of the mountains, but I tried to accept the challenge and aced the art of bringing out the best of all worlds.

So now I am here, with love for my roots and reverence for my future. I plan on unravelling all the aspects of any story that comes my way. My characters would be my heroes. They'd guide me to practice mindful journalism which comes from a place of empathy.
