Samparna Tripathy

Freelance writer on public policy and social issues

 I am a qualified Corporate Sales professional (Engg/MBA) with 3 years of work experience in Vodafone India. However in 2013, at the age of 27, I had an "Elizabeth Gilbert moment" - the journey post my divorce involved quitting my job, taking up Vipassana, crazy binging and finally finding my love of writing. Life has been rock and roll ever since . My articles have been published in forums like The Dawn, Huffington Post, The Wire, The Quint, Daily O, Youth Ki Awaaz and Speaking Tree. This year, I am one of the winners of the Tata Literature Live Mumbai fest and will be reading my story at the event.
