Know the curator
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 India and International], as a freelance writer and blogger.
On PolkaJunction, I cover stories on 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.
