I have contributed an essay / fiction to the New Binary Press publication, Autonomy. My piece is on the subject of domestic violence and media portrayals in the Indian sub-continent. The collection itself is varied writing about the meanings of bodily autonomy.


I have a story (creative non fiction) in a brand new book. The Ordinary Chaos of Being Human: Tales from many Muslim Worlds; edited by Marguerite Richards and published by Penguin SEA. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Marguerite and her team of readers and advisors in the process of writing my story.

Here is my story (one of the many others’) that tangles with having a Muslim identity in today’s world.
