is an emerging writer, poet, curator, photographer, producer, and a passionate stories-seeker. She is an avid chronicler of arts through her photographs and words. Originally from Manipur, she is a now a Dehalvi after living in Delhi for more than a decade. She has been actively engaged in the Delhi Arts and Culture scene for more than 7 years as a photo enthusiast covering performance spaces and as a host of Caferati Open Mics in both Gurgaon and Delhi.
She is the Founder and Director of Octave Foundation.
She grew up listening and reading stories every day. She became a young person quite intrigued about the cultural diversity of this planet. However, when she came out of Manipur and was attempting to make a career in the city of Delhi, she had to face a lot of struggle and stereotypes in her own country because of her looks, language, and food habits. After a decade in the city things did not tone down and instead, the % of racial crime in Delhi shot up. She quit her job as an Information Technology Analyst and started Octave Foundation to provide platforms of convergence to celebrate ethnic diversities that build our cultural ethos. The organization aims to present path breaking cultural events, with an underlying theme of universal harmony through creative and performance arts, which transcend all boundaries by forming a language of their own.
She strongly believes that stories can bring people together. Stories have been traveling for centuries across multiple borders without any visa or passport and hence, stories will bring down the walls existing between people of different communities.
