I have been a journalist by academic training and 16 years of experience. During my last year as a full-time journalist, I led a team that produced the Saturday edition of the Kantipur newspaper. Before that, as the paper’s New Delhi bureau chief from Nov 2008 to Feb 2011, I filed stories and columns for Kantipur and The Kathmandu Post (and Kantipur TV and Radio Kantipur) on Nepal-India relations, Nepalis in India, and Indian politics and society.
I was born in Ramechhap, eastern Nepal. I live and work in Kathmandu.
