Although an engineer by training, Indhu has spent her time in the field of the social sector after graduation. She loves reading. Influenced by the writings of Arundhati Roy, Jhumpa Lahiri, Chitra Banerjee, and Elif Shafak, she aspires to be a writer. She has done internships in NGOs and think tanks. Her role as a research intern at the Foundation for Democratic Reforms, helped her to learn about the field of public policy.
Much interested in the field of research, the experience provided an insider perspective of a research organisation and an opportunity to wear the hat of a researcher, which she did happily. Other than reading and writing, she enjoys playing chess. She recalls her best journey to be the Good Governance Yatra, a field trip she undertook at 22 travelling across four states of India to learn and explore the entrepreneurial and good governance system implemented in our country. She met ambitious, kind-hearted individuals in this journey and it was an amazing learning experience.
Economics, International relations, and Literature fascinate her. She thinks it’s great to have pets, the affectionate bond formed with them is unparalleled and they make individuals better compassionate human beings. She is exploring the career opportunities available and believes she will be a good fit for administration. Highly inclined towards social sciences and the worldview the subjects offered, the Young India Fellowship proved to be a natural choice.
