Cook, cat lady, and always reading—this is how all her bios begin. Ameya has four degrees (because she likes to study yaar, and, no, she’s not telling what where when how), but still can’t make her mind about her career. She wrote a briefly popular blog about dating in Delhi; she set up the Indian Express podcast network; she used to commission books for Penguin India.
Ameya likes people, food, karaoke and long and rambly conversations about big things and little things. She speaks Spanish fluently and likes nothing more than to throw herself into learning a new language. Talking is her superpower, (along with cuddles—you will be hugged unless you indicate a preference not to be) so it surprises exactly nobody that she’s making a podcast.
You can find her @ameyann on all social networks, though if you’re going to add her on Facebook please explain why.
