Hello. I’m a freelance writer, columnist and editor. You could say I’m a journalist. What goes of my pop?
I used to work with Mumbai Mirror, which let me engage in all kinds of fun such as meet Wilbur Sargunaraj, trespass in Singapore and ask Mahakshay Chakraborty what he thinks of Gunda. Sometimes, I would slip out of office for an entire week to meet charming doggies. I also guest write for other publications. Once, I went to a kibbutz and cleaned toilets for two months. I even wrote about waxing my lady bits. I can fake deep social concern given the right opportunity.
My other blog, Swasta Ani Masta, has become a column in Mumbai Mirror. I also write a fortnightly column on companion animals in the same newspaper. My work has been published and plagiarised by international publications. This one is legit, incidentally.
If you’d like me to write for you, drop me a line at mitali.parekh at gmail.com.
I live with Tushar Burman. He’s nice in the way that whenever he goes to the loo, he asks if I want anything. We’re always luring dogs.
I look better than I photograph, am shyer than I seem and better with babies than expected.
