Why blog? / by Ankita Dhussa


A quick post to highlight what this blog is all about.

My name is Ankita and I'll be living in India for the next 9 months as a Fulbright-Nehru Research Fellow. I'll be studying the relationship that urban-dwelling Indian women have with Metro rail systems in New Delhi, specifically the women's-only compartment, with some comparative studies on the Mumbai and Kolkata Metro systems. 

I've already become impressively bad at staying up to date on Whatsapp messages, so I'm hoping this blog can serve as an incredibly informal way to update friends, family and colleagues on my research, general life happenings and photographs, as well as hold me accountable to write. That being said, messages, Skype sessions and snail mail are still heavily encouraged!
