I am an award winning lawyer, author, columnist and Social Entrepreneur on whom the BBC has made a documentary 'Invisible Women of India’. My work as a social entrepreneur has been lauded by Gloria Steinem, the world’s foremost feminist who has endorsed my book. I have authored the bestseller 'Ex Files’, published by Penguin under the Shobhaa De imprint, which has been launched by the Hon’ble Attorney General of India and the Hon'ble Chief Justice of Mumbai High Court. It has been endorsed by Lord Meghnad Desai and Padma Vibhushan awardee Dr. Sonal Mansingh. Ex Files is now a part of the Judicial College syllabus. My strong belief about offering non-judgmental support to those going through divorce through my support group '360 degrees back to life' has led to rebuilding lives. It has also led to encouraging transparency in the new social reality of Divorce in India. I have also translated a book written by the Jain Saints. My work has been lauded both by the National as well as the International media Currently, I am contributing as a regular columnist on Law/Women Empowerment for Huffington Post, Savvy, Dainik Bhaskar and The Quint and I contribute about 20 articles a month for them under my byline.
