We have a new hire. This can only mean deeper, well-told stories. On subjects that we are very kicked about.
Olina Banerji joins us as Staff Writer. Olina started her journalism career at the India Today Group as a features correspondent. In a sharp U-turn, which she says, she is now accustomed to, she next joined Ashoka, a global non-profit, where she helped social start-ups scale their ideas. During her time at Ashoka, Olina wrote on welfare policy and skill development for Forbes, Yourstory and The Wire. With The Ken, she is getting back to journalism and writing. Based in Delhi, she will write on digital policy, regulation, institutions and the impact they have on businesses and citizens. Despite her Delhi upbringing, Olina says her true heart lies in a cracking South Indian breakfast. She can be reached at first name at the-ken.com
