Neeti Singhal

A psychologist, a developmental researcher, and a constant seeker of stories, Neeti is usually found slouching over her drawing sheets, sometimes weaving a maze of words, and always itching for her next calling! She is an avid reader, writer, artist, mountaineer, a bi- cycling enthusiast, and above all, a seasoned recluse at heart. A queer mix of outdoorsy & socially awkward, Neeti finds depth and beauty in the sheer meaninglessness of human existence. Armed with the curiosity of a child and the inquisitiveness of a philosopher, she navigates through the undulating terrains of life with a sense of humor. She thinks she was cursed to be obsessed with all-things-rocky ever since she took her first steps on the slopes of the snowy mountains , as a one year old.
