I am an Indian journalist, with a lot of 'Been there, Done that' kinda stories. I write on environment and development with a strong focus on women from the vulnerable communities. Now, when you do that, you get to see a lot of filth, pain and struggle. But I, despite witnessing all that, am an incurable optimist.
Among the media houses I report for are Thomson Reuters, Global Press Institute and World Pulse - world's largest women's media organization.
