I am a social & political activist. have worked for over 25 years in India at the grass root level as well as doing advocacy . I have seen how the Indian consciousness has shifted over the past twenty years from being centrist to the right. I have watched from close quarters the making of fascist mindsets and I have fearlessly confronted the ideology of hate .

I was nominated along with 999 other women from across the world for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005. I was awarded the National Minority Rights award in 2008 in India.

I usually do not write but have written close to 20 articles for various national newspapers.

I am right now working on my journey of the last 25 years.
