Editor's Letter &

Jayita Bandyopadhyay | Editor

Journalism happened to her “ by chance”. A trained designer from The National Institute of Fashion Technology, she started her career in the publishing industry when she was asked to write “knowledgeable articles on fashion and textiles,” for The Asian Age. Soon, a few articles a month became a fulltime job and fashion became too restricted a subject. Having worked in the industry for over a decade now and with newspapers like The Pioneer, Times of India, India Today, she has been writing extensively about food, travel, fashion, nightlife and everything else that results in upping the human happiness quotient. She can be reached at Click here to read the Editor’s letter for the August 2015 issue of Shubh Yatra.
