Hi, My name’s Tejan Chaudhary. I completed my graduation in engineering in 2019 and then I worked with TCS for around 10 months before joining the IITGN community. My research interests include analysis of public policies and their implementation and the domain of caste politics and social media analysis. My hobbies include(but are not limited to) – penning down my musings, making situation relevant memes, and cracking a PJ once in a while. Discussions about contemporary challenges in social space, Ghalib, Physics and AI will surely act as an ice-breaker for indulging me in a conversation.

Bhargav has done undergraduation from MSU, Baroda in Environmental Studies. If ambient sound surround, you can shoot the breeze with him. Shoot the bull without tea, coffee and soft drinks available about; about windup in constat presence of others around, boundig lack of intimacy and intrusion abound. He would appreciate, if you turn the tables around, bound about with dreamy ambience and rebound libidal charges that surround……..Wind down, wind down. The end is not winding up, up in familiar sounds in foreign tongue but in same old same old……. He has his research interests not clearly fleshed out as of now, still (some of) they are Spatiality, Language, Post-Truth.

Nidhi M Shastri graduated in English literature (hons.) from the Central University of Karnataka, Kalaburagi. She is interested to look at the interaction between language and literature and the creation of literature in everyday life. She enjoys looking at how pop culture operates and influences tiny parts of everyday life (while JP Cooper plays in the background) in addition to observing and drawing from traditional Indian culture – values, systems and motivations to keep going in life. She can be found penning down her musings or typing them away, or cooking up quick snacks when not found listening, talking or watching. An intern with Shivganga, Jhabua she engages with the community from time to time. She volunteers at the NGO working with the tribals of Jhabua, whenever time permits.

She enjoys traveling solo and exploring places on her own. A mental health empath, she firmly believes that all the talk about mental health issues should not remain restricted to confidential rooms but become destigmatized with every passing day.
