Currently residing between New Delhi and Hong Kong, I am a former financial journalist and have worked in London and Hong Kong with Bloomberg TV, and prior to this, in Washington DC. I now write on a range of economic, political, development and social issues - whilst I learn my way around being a female entrepreneur in India. I am also a contributor to the South China Morning Post and Forbes Asia, among others. I've written a Lonely Planet Guidebook and a children's story for the literary NGO Pratham Books. The author is a Forbes contributor. The opinions expressed are those of the writer.
