About Me

A student of English Literature who wanted to do a Ph.D on the representation of women in Mills & Boons romance novels, I fell in love with the idea of cultural exchanges through languages when I went to Magdeburg, Germany for an exchange programme with Otto-von-Guericke University during my second year of M.A. While in Europe, I also visited Denmark, Sweden and finally France, which pushed me to continue studying French at the Alliance Française de Bombay.

I finished my Masters and moved to Pune where I started freelancing as a content writer. I also finished learning French and started teaching at the Alliance Française de Pune in 2005, continuing to freelance as a writer & translator.

I started dabbling in Social Media in 2009, when I was moonlighting as a content developer for a startup and took to it like a duck to water. (You can read more about my Social Media journey here and see my work in Projects.) Somewhere along the way, I also picked up a second Masters at the Université Grenoble Alpes in FLE (French as a Foreign Language), formalising my passion for teaching French.

Based in Bangalore since 2011, I now teach at the Alliance Française de Bangalore and freelance as a Social Media Consultant.

I have an amazing husband and a beautiful dog, Arya. I love reading, teaching French, writing, talking and cooking. I also love wine (blanc et rosé), single malt whisky, cheese, mangoes and strawberries.

  1. Good luck with your blog Geets! i’ve attempted twice myself….and the only thing that has stopped me from continuing is my over-dominating Role (motherhood)….as a writer, i have only me and myself to prod, none else. So looking at you, am inspired maybe i could re-hitch my writer Wagon to my Lazy Chillies site yet again! Lovely review, and i shall read more and more. Vas-y, continue! Bon courage chérie, je ne connais pas cet aspect de ta personnalité…quel plaisir!
