Hi, I'm Sanskrita, an independent journalist reporting on social justice, human rights, politics, culture, and occasionally on health and environment. I am currently based in Guwahati, Assam.

While my main interests are reporting and writing, I also occasionally shoot with a Canon 700D. You can find my Behance portfolio here. My journalism work can be found here.

I have lived in New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai for education and work, but having spent my childhood and teenage years in Assam, I have an interest in issues concerning the Northeast of India. I speak Assamese (native), English, Hindi, and passable Bengali, Nefamese and Nagamese.
