Team Hercircle.in

Tanya Chaitanya
CEO and Editor-in-Chief

After having helmed Femina as its editor-in-chief for 13 years, Tanya needed a break. Against all logic, the workaholic in her pushed her to create an ambitious, inclusive, purpose-driven movement called Her Circle. Logic is also the last thing on her mind when she is spending time with her first-born Pushkin (Lhasa Apso by breed, untrained foolish canine by choice) and her babygirl, Trina (AKA human tornado).

Piyush Chopra
Chief Strategy Advisor

Piyush directs the Chairperson’s Office at Reliance and heads all special communications and international relations. When she is not writing, she is problem-solving. When she is not problem-solving, she is learning how to, from the center of her circle – her little daughter Roohani.

Iona Chatterjee
Assistant Editor

After having driven several narratives as a digital content creator and marketer for more than a decade, Iona Chatterjee chose to change the narrative and drive her passion instead; a passion that connects her to Her Circle’s inclusive expressions. A shopaholic and coffee lover, when she’s not writing and binge-watching, Iona loves to spend time with her parents and lives the life she’s always dreamt of.

Karishma Sen
Features Editor – Holistic Living

Writer, baker, and travel enthusiast, Karishma Sen mixes her love for food, travel, fashion, and photography to weave strong narratives. With coffee running through her veins and books ruling her heart, she’s waiting for the day she can travel, and cook from an isolated island somewhere.

Ranjith V
Digital Marketing Manager

Communication and coordination is what Darsha Hiwrale loves. Born to entertain, mimicry is this curly-haired diva’s forte. When she’s not working, you’ll find her cracking PJs, exploring with her fur baby, and taking up new challenges.

 

Harish Iyer

Photographer, writer, poet and animal lover, Harish Iyer watches the world through the view finder.

Yash Bedi
Video Editor & Graphic Designer

Coming from the holy city of Haridwar, Yash Bedi’s life is all about enjoying the small moments rather than running behind the glitz and glam of the metropolitan cities. As an avid animator, video editing guru, and an art lover, he is someone who just can’t sit idle. He has his own universe within his laptop, and is known as Red Riding Hood among his friends because of his red scooter and helmet. When he’s not working, he loves to go places, capture moments of life and savor the rich taste of Indian food.
