Two out of these three statements are true, guess which ones: I crave romance novels as much as I crave chocolate cake. I'm allergic to unhappy endings, because i'm a sensitive mush. I'm an adrenaline junkee and I can't go a single break without either diving from the sky, swimming down to the depths of the oceans or jumping from a bridge with a rope tied to my ankles. Just kidding, All of these are true! After completing a B.A in Psychology from Bryn Mawr (USA), I'm back in Bombay to write the next chapter of my story.

Likes: Butter, books, dogs, chai, films, butter, sleep. Dislikes: not sleeping, people who don't like butter. Can: be a cat person, write decently funny scripts, only make scrambled eggs, work for food. Cannot: not sleep, like people who don't like butter.

I'm the man who holds this office together. I make a mean cup of coffee and surprise people with my killer dance moves.

I'm a self taught photographer inspired by everything around me. People, places and local trains have all served as my muses--I like to turn everything into art. My pictures aren't just stills, if you look closer, there are stories behind everything. If you want to make me smile, just hand me a cup of chai!

A man of few words and fewer expressions, I use graphic design to trick people into thinking they actually like something. Is it a bird, is it a plane? I'll decide! Raw indie films, random ramblings and home food are my go to conversation starters. And that's all I have to say!

Sania Chitnis

Apurva Vurity

A feminist who is attempting to bring change by questioning everything. The only thing that gets my heart beating is one full cup of black coffee! After doing my Masters in TISS and working with NGOs and International Organizations like UN India, I realised that I enjoy learning about people, structures and why the society functions in the manner that it does. The hope is to make the world a better place!

Jheel Bastia

Jheel Bastia

An army brat and environmentalist who has travelled across the country and has managed to survive extreme conditions while exploring the unchartered waters. The quest for knowledge continues. With over 5 years of work experience as a sustainability and environmental management professional, I have worked on rural and urban developmental projects with corporates, foundations and International Organisations. An Alumna of Teri University, New Delhi and United Nations University- Japan, my core expertise are strategic planning and stakeholders engagement for effective implementation of the programme.

From finance, to luxury management, to Humans of Bombay; I’m the girl who’s lived a thousand lives, not just between the pages of books.

Sania Chitnis

Vincy Abraham

A strategist with a heart for social justice and equality for poor communities. I've worked extensively for programs in water, sanitation, livelihood, gender, education, health and disability. I was one of the youngest speakers at the United Nations and have continued to speak on development issues at international conferences. I have a Masters in Political Science with a focus on International Development. Also, I believe in the power of retail therapy.

Rati Pednekar

I'm a storyteller who became a writer after a Masters in UK. I love reading, painting sunset skies, the smell of old books and coffee. I wear mismatched socks, collect key-chains and write stories at 3 in the morning. Social awkwardness is in my blood. People fascinate me. So does murder.

Sania Chitnis

Tanishka Roy

A chef at heart trying to do good and make people smile outside her kitchen. With a 5 year experience in the development sector I've developed into a full time learner. A free soul rambling around to capture nature and admire horses the whole day while thinking of the next possible strategic collaboration.
