          Tillana Desai

          Sub Editor

          Tillana is our new Sub Editor. She holds a Master's in Development Communication and likes to read anything that can stay still while she reads it. With a self-proclaimed good sense of humor and a tried and tested bad memory, she has a handful of plays and films in her kitty. She has a voice which she is not afraid of voicing (and by that she means only in dubbing studios. Okay not.) She loves teaching theater and public speaking to kids and has a bunch of munchkins aged 4-15 exerting their bundled up summer vacation energies with her. She likes sharp crayons, yawning perennially, slow cars and doughnuts. Mathematically challenged. Puppies over people.
