About

Hello!

My name is Pavitra. I have been writing on Art + Design for the past 11 years. I started out in 2007 , with a blog called ‘MASALA CHAI’ , that featured South Asian Art and Design from around the world. In my travels across the internet, I unearthed almost 500 incredible artists, designers and brands who are now industry leaders. I curated the ‘independent brands’ category for retail giant ‘Harvey Nichols’ at their flagship store in Saudi Arabia, for an Indian themed exhibition. I have also given a talk on battling Bipolar Disorder and using creative pursuit to overcome, at the INK talks.  I took a hiatus from the blog from 2016-2018. 

This is MASALA CHAI life, a version 2.0 if you will. I will be writing from a more personal perspective about interior design, fashion trends and lifestyle pieces. Cheers!
