395 2020-04-08 In a country of 1.3 billion, space isn’t just scarce – it’s taboo. Try squaring that with a pandemic
In India, many live in less space than is recommended for prison cells. And to most of us, having our own room is unimaginable – if not taboo. Social distancing as a measure to battle the coronavirus pandemic isn’t just a challenge. It’s completely unnatural to a country where community is everything.

373 2020-03-27 The coronavirus is reminding us that anxiety is good – as long as it doesn’t turn into panic
It’s OK to feel anxious about the coronavirus pandemic. Anxiety has been stigmatised as a disorder or disease, but we never would have survived as a species without it. And it stops us drinking with friends on spring break in Miami when we should be self-isolating. If we treat our anxiety with compassion and not just as an obstacle, it can be a very beneficial trait – even the hallmark of great leadership.

26 2019-09-30 Why I’m joining as the Sanity correspondent
In 2016, after many exciting years in the job, I decided to take a break from journalism.Storytelling has been at the core of my identity for as long as I can remember. Stepping away from it was hard, but the constant doomsaying around journalism, rampant job losses across the industry, and the straitjacket of advertisement-based business models had started to get oppressive.l had become jaded and cynical, and I hated feeling this way about the profession I had idealised since I was a teenager.In search of a media utopiaAs I started looking for media utopias (convinced they didn’t exist), I discovered New York University professor Jay Rosen’s research on global media experiments that were overthrowing the tyranny of ad dollars. The Membership Puzzle, as Professor Rosen’s project was called, introduced me to De Correspondent. Its emphasis on putting “members” first, radically reimagining “beats”, and capturing the stories that matter by staying away from breaking news seemed the very definition of utopia.
