Based in New Delhi, Prashasti tends to think of herself as an evil scientist and life as a long experiment. Part of her experimenting includes reading, jumping from gig to gig and pausing, every now and then to flip through a dog-eared classic. Her current fascination is with old interview recordings of legendary personalities, articles on daily routines of notable authors, TED talks and European films. And of course, reporting on all things luxury.
