Take us through your journey of how you got to where you are today.

Did you always know you wanted to be an editor at a major publication?

Love|Wellness|Adventure|Equality|Hope. In the January issue of @elleindiaofficial we explored the idea of #optimism in this post-truth world. Read @sonamkapoor in conversation with @bof’s @imranamed on what’s worth fighting for. Pico Iyer’s Confessions of an Optimist piece is sublime. And our passion project where we collaborated with @rupikaur_ to create a fashion story through beautiful illustrations by @sudeepti.tucker. Thank you to my super amazing team without whom this would have been impossible. @serena_menon @mrudul.pathak @malini_banerji @rahulvijay1988 @nevillebhandara @rochelle.pinto @mamtamody @nirjadutt @vidhimirpuri

Your very first issue as the EIC of Elle has Sonam Kapoor on the cover. That’s an amazing start to this new phase of your career. What would you say is your favorite part of this issue?

As Editor-In-Chief, what is a typical day like for you?

How was the shift from Fashion Features Director to Editor-In-Chief?

A lot of people might not know that you’ve written a book. What an accomplishment! From the snippets we’ve read, A Cool, Dark Place is (for lack of a better word) quite dark. Tell us how this literature came together and what message you wanted to relay to your readers.
