About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Academic
Location Panjim, Goa, India
Introduction I like to describe myself as an itinerant mendicant because it captures two aspects of my life perfectly. My educational formation has seen me traverse various terrains, geographical as well as academic. After a Bachelor's in law from the National Law School of India, I worked for a while in the environmental and developmental sector. Subsequently, I obtained a Master's in the Sociology of Law, and have recently obtained a Doctorate in Anthropology in Lisbon for my study of the citizenship experience of Goan Catholics. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for International Studies at the University Institute of Lisbon, but continue to shuttle between Lisbon and Goa. I see myself as a mendicant not only because so many of my voyages have been funded by scholarships and grants but because I will accept almost any offer for sensorial and intellectual stimulation, and thank the donor for it. This blog operates as an archive of my writings in the popular press.
