Story
Tagline
Writer, Blogger, Consultant
Introduction

I am the owner of 3 blogs (Talk To The Wall) and I am currently going big with my beauty blog, Be For Beauty (www.beforbeauty.com).

Since I am a fulltime writer and a media consultant, here's why I think you need to know about my work.

The Credentials

Would it make a difference that I have been writing from the age of 12? Yes, I know, when we are young, and innocent, and delusional, we all think we can write. But I am actually a writer. Yeah, no shit. I was a writer when there were a few writers in India, and I am still a writer, and a blogger, when they are very approachable career options.

So I joined the media back in 2006, fresh out of Delhi University, all about Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Amitav Ghosh and Gustave Flaubert—and of course, the kalam. Then shit happened.

After a journalism course, I went to a TV channel (Headlines Today). It started with an internship where I was willing to work for 12 hours, or maybe more, and get myself put to scut work by journalists putting together their stories. They offered me a job; I took it.

And hence began a tough journey where it all work and no play. Well, a little play, but not so much. Most of my classmates either took their parents’ suggestion to go to London and piss money, or stay in India and do nothing. I went to work at odd times of day and night, without wanting to see myself doing a 30 second PTC for Indian Television. So I wrote and cribbed and produced a show and complained and on some days, finished work and went out with my friends. My colleagues became best friends and life became work. And somewhere, between rundowns and scream sessions, I forgot I’d come here to write.

In 2010, life taught me a lesson. That it’s not gonna be around for long. I quit my job, the one I’d finally gotten used to and opted out for another world of lifestyle journalism in India: a place full of stereotypes, judgments, hardwork, and a lot of FUN. So I wrote and I wrote (for magazines like FHM, Go Now, Man’s World, Robb Report, Marie Claire, there may be more, I don’t remember the rest). Most recently, I was writing for a health and lifestyle magazine (Prevention—And Women’s Health), where anchoring lifestyle sections made me fall in LOVE with writing about beauty.

Crazy Quirks

You know how your energy attracts energy? Uh-huh. I attract all kinds of things, habits and people. This blog comes out of a laptop that’s as old as a dog. It’s a HE, it’s a Sony VAIO, my sister’s gift from 2006. No, it doesn’t work without a charger, and it switches off once in a while, and yes, it is moody, but it’s mine. And I love it. And I love it enough to give it a name. No, I am not telling you his name.

The Writing

So this is NOT a MAGAZINE, so I am not going to be following a template or a tone, or a calendar: I’ll do what I like and based on suggestions, what you like. I am a person, very real, so I WON’T be preachy: I am superbly lazy, I am NOT obsessed with the mirror (anymore),

On the face of it, it may look shallow. But it is really not. It’s fun, it can be funny, interesting, informational, science, technology specific, rewarding (‘coz you get to try the products) and more rewarding when others’ like what you have to say. And what I have to say, is this…

I think we are all beautiful and our flaws—the burn mark from a food experiment, the acne mark from our teens, it makes us who we are. But we all deserve clear skin ‘coz I just don’t want you, or me, to be one of those girls, who don’t step out ‘coz they have a big fat pimple. At least not me, I am too old for this. So if I drink the night before, I make up for it the night later. Or if I don’t sleep enough, I’ll tell you which concealer/CC cream to use so that you look fabulous. And I’ll speak to experts: you don’t have to just take my word. Cool?
