Bio

I write, since forever. Yes, some of us wrote pre-internet times too. Like the 7-year-old Niharika who wrote a poem on ‘Leaf’. And then on ‘Life’, since she knew so much about it.

I am an avid traveller with 24 countries, and a few hundred cities imprinted in my soul. My love for travel grew when I challenged myself to travel solo. And then, the bug bit me.
I am also a fitness enthusiast. Losing 50lbs has been a huge turning point in my life. …


A new career, more money, and a greater sense of life purpose

Imagine this.

One day you’re looking at some people having a wonderful life. Not in just superficial terms, but they genuinely look so happy. They’ve found a purpose, and their passion pays them to pursue it. It’s almost envious how sorted they look.

You want this freedom. You want to be your own boss; you want to do cool things. You want to make money good enough to gift your mom something which will make her smile and to travel places resources currently don’t allow you to. You want this life, an ideal life.

Instead, you go back to your…


The good, the bad, and the ugly.

I started an Instagram account when I was just 16, back in 2012. Instagram and I were both quite young back then.

I was irregular because back then it was just another app on my iPod Touch. I would rather spend my time on Facebook chat than to figure out this new app with a weird, brown camera icon.

Fast forward to the 18-year-old me who went to university — I turned my life around with a new journey. The journey of health and wellness. The start of my weight loss journey to lose 50lbs and overcome my obesity.

I…


Tips to avoid sabotaging your long-term success.

I have a wealthy uncle who’s always working, trying to multiply his money into more and more for decades. The money multiplies, but it's never enough. When it's never enough, there are other ways he tries to earn money. His capitalist mindset is really strong, and he wants to churn money from wherever he can. More money also gives him the resources to expand or differentiate his income streams, which leads to his greed rising. This is an endless cycle.

I feel writers can really change the world. If you can impact even one person no matter how little, you’re…


And some unique ways you can bring it back to life

We are all creatives because we all create something. From your first drawing of an apple to experimenting with a new salad dressing, you’ve used your imagination to create something. Remember the lines you used to express your love to a school crush? Oh yes, even if it was just in your personal diary — that makes you creative too.

We all have imagination and ideas and have at least tried to put them out of our head.

You deserve to become the healthiest version of yourself.

I remember after my ultrasound at 17 when I was prescribed various blood tests. They diagnosed me with PCOD, which is a hormonal disorder in women.

Do you know the cause I was told? “Unhealthy lifestyle.” That was it.

So here I was experiencing pain and acne and menstruation lasting as long as 3 weeks sometimes because I’ve had a pathetic diet all my life. I don’t know about you, but knowing I have cysts in my body because of the food I eat felt horrible. I was so pissed at myself.

At 18, I took my life into my…

What if your apps could hear you think and talk?

We’ve all changed the ways we use apps these days. As a Gen-Z, our purpose for using Facebook differs from how we use Instagram. The way we use Tinder differs from Bumble — even if they’re here to serve the same purpose.

So if apps could hear us talk, what would the apps say to us?

Logged in to check who’s getting married and who’s having kids, didn’t you?

Be prepared before you take the leap.

On April 01, 2021, I quit my job to freelance full-time, and part of me thought my boss would think it was an April fool’s prank.

It wasn’t. I’ve been a part-time freelancer for the last 4 months, during which there have been several ups where my income increased threefold to lows which I’ll speak about soon.

If you’re planning to become a freelancer or are a newbie to this world, there are some things you need to come to terms with before you start.

You need to be prepared. Preparation makes you brave and saves you from the frustration…


Lessons driven by passion.

There are people who are wealthy and sane, then there’s a special segment of people who are wealthy with a whole lot of crazy.

When I met this person, my perception of wealthy people was entirely different. Stanford-educated and working at one of the largest tech companies, he was too humble for the stature he carries in the society.

During my last few months of ghostwriting for him there’s so much I have learnt; we’ve had weekly lessons, like university classes to write his blog. …


Time to rethink your actions

We try to give in our best in relationships, isn’t that what love is all about? Two people making it work because they feel so deeply for each other. But what if the things you’re doing to ‘make it work’ are actually counterproductive? What if the things you’re doing to save a ship from sinking is actually sinking you?

When I had my first boyfriend at 15, a senior in school told me, “Acceptance and compromise are the building blocks of a relationship.”

Do you sometimes take a stand for yourself, which later makes you feel bad about how your…
