So thrilled to see my latest story ‘A Sword & A Sari’ about the fabulous Meenakshi Raghavan 'Gurukkhal', India’s female martial arts grand master, featured on @vice today. Check out the whole story on Vice. 

Thanks to @elizabethrenstrom for believing in my work. My heartfelt thanks especially go out to Meenakshi and her beautiful family for welcoming me with open arms and teaching me some badass fighting techniques. ⚔️🥋💪🏻
