Popular Science Magazine, India
Since 2013, I write a monthly roundup column called Briefs from around the World that features science news – mostly, I confess, to do with animals, space, mental health, and quirky stuff like malaria vectors being attracted to the odor of smelly feet (there, see, it’s an animal story, after all.) @PopSciMag doesn’t publish online but I’ve put up some of my pieces on medium.com with permission.
The Podcasting Couch in the Sunday Mid-Day
I wrote a column called The Podcasting Couch for a major portion of 2009.
I contributed several pieces on healthy living to Fitternity.com this year. They’re all compiled here: http://www.fitternity.com/author/chhavi-sachdev mostly of the “Are you lactose intolerant?” and “Where to find decaf coffee in Mumbai” ilk.
I also ghost-edited a bunch of travel guides for Conde Nast Traveller, India.
And I ghost wrote a couple dozen articles for a travel site that I can’t name. I did get paid for it, though.
Here’s a piece (2013) I did on working from home after the Melisa Mayer brouhaha in the Sunday Mid-Day.
I used to contribute once in a way to Mumbai Boss –http://mumbaiboss.com/author/chhavi/
Recent stories have included a profile of Prabha Panse, matchmaker for the differently abled in Mumbai and
(very heavily edited) review of Mumbai’s first farmers’ market.
I also contribute to the www.southasiawired.com blog that’s run out of Radio Netherlands to cover South Asia and the diaspora.
I also do various social media work and used to be a consultant at blogworks and have worked with clients like Fastrack, Chimes Group, Chilli Seassons and growX briefly, but mostly I stick to radio now and do limited social media marketing.
