Welcome!

Hello, passing stranger. 

I'm Shreya, I grew up in Calcutta, studied in Calcutta and London, and have lived in Delhi and Bombay, with shorter stints in a couple of other places. I'm 30, and my pronouns are she/they. 

I'm deeply interested in a wide range of prose (all kinds of fiction, non-fiction, memoir), myth and cultural memory, history and politics, gender and sexuality, disability and mental health, poetry and performance art, as well as esotericism. 

I'm a writer of fiction, creative non-fiction and – slowly – poetry. I also do a bunch of other stuff, which you can read about above – including independent journalism, editing, research, rapporteuring for non-profits, and performance art. 

I'm a bona fide cat person, and I adore dogs – I hope you'll see my point when I say binaries are silly and almost always inaccurate.
