Her work has appeared nationally in People's Archive of Rural IndiaThe CaravanFountainInk, TehelkaFinancial WorldMedia Voice etc., and internationally in the Narratively, The Diplomat (video stories) and The Media Project.

She was in Kashmir for six months in 2016, during the entire period of the uprising and violence after the killing of militant leader Burhan Wani. Based on her experiences as a woman living under curfew in Kashmir, she wrote a four part series for BBC Hindi.

She is currently working on her first book, biography of late actor Tom Alter.
