Deputy Digital Editor
Chirag Mohanty Samal is the Deputy Digital Editor at Cosmopolitan India. She has more than a decade of experience in lifestyle journalism. She started off her career on the news desk of national dailies but her notions majorly shaped by Jane Austen and Emily Bronte were a deviant in the world of hard news. Like Sherlock Holmes drawn by the whiff of fresh mystery or like Bertie Wooster inadvertently and persistently seeking Jeeves, she found herself gravitating towards fanciful feature writing. After having worked with newspapers like The Economic Times, The Business Standard, The Deccan Chronicle and The Hindustan Times, she made it to the masthead of glossies like Men’s Health India and Femina. A Master's Degree holder in Linguistics from Calcutta University, you would find her buried in books when she isn’t out travelling, exploring new restaurants, meeting new people or partying with old friends. Her myriad interests also include daydreaming and time travel.
