I was born in Srinagar, Kashmir, and raised in the suburbs of the city.
My home city, lies, in the nestled valley of the Himalayas.
I did my schooling from Burn Hall School & Tyndale Biscoe School, and graduated with a Commerce degree, from Islamia College of Science and Commerce, affiliated with the University of Kashmir. After that, I did my MSc International Business, from the University of Hertfordshire, in the United Kingdom.
I have written for Rising Kashmir, Kashmir Images, The Kashmir Walla, Kashmir Monitor, Kashmir Dispatch, The News Kick, With Kashmir, The Nation (Pakistan), Counter Currents, Open Democracy, Kashmir Times and Greater Kashmir.
I also blog on Globe UpFront.
