New Delhi bred. New York based. I work with my hands, and eat with them too. (Materials are a toy shop and I am a toddler with reckless abandon).
My mother is a classically trained Mohiniyattam (മോഹിനിയാട്ടം) dancer. She speaks the languages of mythology and movement. My father is a culinary entrepreneur. Through food as a catalyst, he activates service as an essential tenet of culture.
My sister and I were raised by individuals who fought (and hard) to help us explore our own foundations in what it means to embody the ‘feminine’, ‘feminist’, ‘indian’, ‘intersectional’; what it means to uphold strength and vulnerability as synonymous virtue; what it means to find our rhythms passing rotis around the dinner table.
