The Team

Editor

An NRI child hailing from Morocco, Dipika Asnani believes herself to be a true Punekar by now. And, you’d never guess otherwise until you speak to her in Marathi! She’s a Social Media Marketer by profession but a writer at heart. Loves cats, fluffly socks, fantasy novels, is slightly obsessed with Harry Potter and will do anything for a little bit more chai.

Our lady, the first of her name, our Punekar-in-Chief. Happiest when holed up with a mug of chai, her dog and The Punekar. She’s partial to semicolons and silently corrects people’s grammar and pronunciations. Immensely mad about Pune, this @misspunekar.
