Area of Expertise:

Professional Experience:
As a lawyer, I started out as a litigator at the Supreme Court of India and widened my scope to the Delhi High Court, before moving to Lucknow. There, I practiced law at the Allahabad high Court, Lucknow Bench, the Family Court, among other legal forums. Since I always had a bent towards human rights, I decided to switch to the Non- Profit sector and worked under Dr. Neelam Singh at Vatsalya, Lucknow, heading a PLAN India funded project on Child Protection, with special focus on the rights of the girl child. Under the leadership of Dr. Singh, I also got an opportunity to work on the PCPNDT Act and strive towards the proper enforcement of the enactment. Furthermore, I researched on and wrote multiple grant proposals to secure funding for the organisation. In future, I am keen on continuing rights based work, preferably focused on child and women's rights.
