I studied Creative Writing and Literary Criticism at St. Catz as a Betty and Donald Keating Scholar in 2013. I'm currently working as a journalist with India Today Television in New Delhi after graduating from St. Xavier's College - Autonomous, Mumbai and completing my post-graduation from the Asian College of Journalism, Chennai.

 

In many ways, Trinity term of 2013 at St. Catz remains as one the most treasured and inspiring summers of my student life. Each tutorial in those 9 weeks were packed with intense discussion and peppered with lighthearted conversation, often in cafe over a pot of English tea. The University of Oxford, and particularly St. Catz, not just helped me evolve as a writer but also immersed me in quintessential British culture; be it playing croquet, feasting on Summer Pudding, punting on River Cherwell, or simply cycling along the river bank with ducks and swans for company. St. Catz is also where I met some of the most fascinating and inspiring students from around the world, from whom I learnt a great deal.

Oxford for me is a magical city of dreaming spires, where gargoyles guard the town, bridges and arches tell a story, writers write under a tree on the riverside, where you read with your friends, laugh with your tutor and sleep with your books.
