Born in February 1975, he was schooled in Durgapur in West Bengal, studied in Jamia Millia Islamia and the University of Delhi from where he obtained a Masters’ degree in English Literature in 2000. He began his career as a researcher and copy editor in 1997 with the publication department at the New Delhi-based non-government organisation Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) when the institution was preparing its 5th Citizen’s report on the State of India’s Environment. He was subsequently to work on the desk at Down To Earth, CSE’s premier environment and science fortnightly. Later, in 2012, after a walk through different woods, he re-engaged with CSE as member of a team at its Media Resource Centre (MRC) that brought to completion the mammoth two-volume 7th State of India’s Environment report: Excreta Matters, on India’s water and waste scenario. In this period he was also associated with other publications at CSE while assisting with media outreach. Earlier, he was associated with the Centre for Armed Forces and Historical Research at the United Service Institution of India, New Delhi, a defence think tank where besides spending copious hours in the library, he was to copy-edit a short history on the Indian Army. Between 2007 and 2010 he was associate editor at an aviation and defence trade publication, the Vayu Aerospace and Defence Review. He also had a brief stint with the Tehelka group as a special correspondent.
