Shreya Singh Bhandari

As an academic social worker, Shreya Singh Bhandari has a keen eye to decode the untold stories of people belonging to diverse walks of life. Different people introduced through her writings are not merely characters of a story, but blurred representation of the society we live in. It is because of them she has been on a  learning curve and walking around with a social magnifying glass- looking for intricacies that make us so different, yet so similar. Furthermore, her interests predominantly lie in the area of using communication tools for development purposes.
