It has not been easy balancing writing and motherhood, yet I've learnt on the job as most of us mothers do and I've been fortunate enough to have my life as a parent featured in magazines like 'Mother's World', Better Homes and Gardens, 'Child Magazine', Venture magazine, Mom and Me Bloggers, First Moms Club, World Of Mums and more.
In March 2017, I was also featured on the Buzzing Bubs List of 10 Fabulous Indian Mom Bloggers to follow.
In May 2018, The Times of Amma was listed by Indian Moms Connect as one of 'The 6 Indian Moms to follow on Instagram'. In the same year, I was also awarded with the prestigious Laadli Media Award for my article, "Why The Phrase "Boys Will Be Boys" Is Damaging Our Sons " published in Women's web.
In May 2019, I was featured on the BBC WorldWide Service's award-winning show, 'Conversations' and I was invited to talk about online parenting communities.
I am currently based in New York City with my husband and my seven-year old daughter and three-year old son who are growing up as third culture kids.
