Hi! My name is Aastha and I love to exercise the brain by reading and writing. My writing ranges across philosophy, global issues, societal musings, or really anything that I want to pen down. I recently wrote a short book that reads as a collection of stories on lessons I learned from my father and memories from my time growing up in Calcutta, India.
Post Calcutta, I moved to the United States for college, after which I spent a few years working in Finance in New York. I have since transitioned to the startup world and currently live a semi-nomadic life that involves a lot of camping and hiking!
Some of my other interests are lifting and geeking out on nutrition & longevity science. I tried writing a few poems on longevity here, but it’s on pause now. Maybe some day I’ll get back to it. In any case, if you want to talk aging, nutrition and longevity science, I’m always up for it!
