Hi, I'm Sanskrita, an independent journalist from Assam. My work has appeared in Foreign Policy, Slate, Al Jazeera, Atlas Obscura, Nikkei Asia, and other international and Indian publications. Previously, I worked as a journalist at Hindustan Times in Mumbai and Chandigarh, and as an assistant editor at the independent publishing house Aleph Book Company in New Delhi. I can speak Assamese (native), English, Hindi, and can understand Nagamese and Bengali.

I've received grants and fellowships from the Pulitzer Center, Eastwest Center, Southasia Speaks and the Centre for Financial Accountability. In 2024, I was part of a team of reporters that won the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing’s Best in Business Awards for a series titled "Asia's Age of Hydropolitics" published in Nikkei Asia. In 2023, I was a finalist for the Hostwriter Prize, and in 2022 I was shortlisted for the Fetisov Journalism Awards.
