A Korea specialist by training, a researcher/writer by experience, and a graphic designer/illustrator by hobby, I move wherever the wind takes me. As a cancer survivor, I am driven by a profound curiosity about life and all of its twists and turns. On my blog, I delve into the mysterious ways of the leukemia cell, the ties that bind us, and our perception of the past and the way it moulds our present and future. And as a member of the Global Advisory Team of Gwalior Knowledge Foundation, I conduct research on Asian affairs and healthcare. On the side, I enjoy dabbling in graphic design/drawing for PechaKuchaNight Gwalior, among others.
