About Chitra Balasubramaniam

I am passionate about writing especially on Craft, Travel, Art, Environment, food and more… Along with the wordsmithing comes taking images to accompany the writings. Meaning yes, I have a good stock of wonderful images as well as stories from India. It is the documentation and research on crafts especially textiles along with offbeat locales, unusual wonderful tasting natural food which spurs me on. In another avatar I do market research, pre-investment feasibility studies & financial analysis for investing. My work has been published in India and abroad in leading magazines – Design Today, Swagat, Discover India, Jetwings, Apparel….. is a labour of love for a city which has been my home for so long and has given me so much. The book is a labour of love of hunting and collecting things in Delhi.

Among other things, I collect interesting dolls, vessels, books, textiles... I collect both vintage, antique and contemporary pieces of Indian textiles and those from abroad. And occasionally part with it!
