Founder & Director
I am a creative entrepreneur based in New York City. As an immigrant who migrated to the US in 2004, I spent several years absorbing the creative and cultural education programs New York City had to offer for all seasons and to all age groups. This inspired me to develop various initiatives that explored new ways of looking at and learning about Indian culture. This age-old culture which is packed with aesthetic beauty has also deeper meanings attached to its cultural practices which often go unnoticed.
In 2021 I started Akṣarā and its mission is to bring to the forefront traditional and contemporary ideas and thoughts about Indian culture in creative and meaningful ways. It utilizes the power of arts (this includes visual, performing, literary, and other art forms) to offer workshops, lectures, and event experiences. I am looking to make Akṣarā a creative hub for Southeast Asians and people of all other communities to come together through a shared learning experience about Indian culture.
