I am an academic juggler and a fence hitter. I discovered my interest in academics only during my MA in CIEFL in the company of caring teachers and rabid intellectuals! I realised that intellectual labour could fetch global credentials unlike the construction labour of Adda coolie of urban developers! As a high school and college student, I taught the children of Adda coolies in the evenings but none of those children surpassed their immediate circumstances to attain social mobility through education. Luckily, my investment in Education, as I aspired, paid off in landing me in a University teaching profession.
My M.Phil. research project dealt with theorising the experience of schooling and Dalit childhood in rural India using a critical memory framework. For my PhD project, I used an interdisciplinary approach to understand the history of Dalit emancipation through the reading of Dalit Autobiographies.
Prior to joining TISS, Hyderabad campus in 2013, I taught Bachelors and Masters students at Delhi University and Ambedkar University, Delhi.
