Know the curator

Hi !
I am Meenakshi, an India based independent writer, and curator of this blog named PolkaJunction. I write for national and international publications, apart from collaborating with tourism boards and lifestyle brands [ both Indian and global], as a freelance writer and blogger.

On PolkaJunction, I cover stories around travel and culture at the intersection of architecture, arts, UNESCO heritage sites, vegetarian food, traditions, and lifestyle, interweaved with some soft adventure and social responsibility. I also love documenting people who are passionate about handicrafts and collect heirlooms.

Further, consider to know my blogging endeavours better, by clicking on the READ MORE button.

My journalistic stories based on thorough research and reporting, delve into the realms of science, culture, travel and sustainability. These have been published in National Geographic, The Guardian, BBC Travel, Smithsonian Magazine, NYTimes Styles Magazine (Aus), Nature Medicine,  National Geographic Traveller UK & India, The National UAE, South China Morning Post,Atlas Obscura, BBC Future,TripSavvy and others.
