This is the toughest ask...believe me! Talking about ‘Who I Am’ is not something I’d like to venture into, as it almost seems that I am putting myself up on display. But now that you are here, and you are (at least I am assuming that you will if you aren’t already) reading my blog/website/personal sanctuary, you should know about me.
Here goes –
I was previously Nikita Banerjee and now am Nikita Banerjee Bhagat*. I have a BA degree in English Literature from Sophia College, Mumbai and a postgraduate diploma in social communications media from Sophia Polytechnic.
I have over 9 years of experience in content and communications. I have written on Animation films, VFX, celebrities, books, health, lifestyle, parenting, education, spirituality and astrology. I have worked with brands such as Ponds India, Yardley of London (Wipro), JAM Magazine, and mycity4kids, Ezeego1, Future Generali, Limeroad and Speaking Tree. You can look me up here - Linkedin
To my near and dear ones, I am quite the chatterbox but I can be quiet as a mouse and go without talking for days on end, and then there are days when I’d chew out your ears. I think I am amiable, especially if you love books and dogs. But if you happen to mention specific names like CB, DD or RS, the conversation will end before it can start. As a dog lover, you’d find that he, Bolt, the Labrador, is my favourite topic of discussion. I love reading fiction and write some too in my free time. I am a major foodie but too lazy to cook on most days.
I am currently freelancing my way make a living and enjoying it.
I am also a confused feminist, very wary due to the weird idiosyncrasies and ideologies being propagated in the name of women empowerment. But if you want to discuss equality and tolerance, I might join the conversation. More often than nought, I speak my mind. My folks’ hate this side of me but hey, I am blunt but not brash.
*Gave in to the husband's request for adding his last name to mine.
