About Rajendran

Was part of the early team that saw rediff.com grow from a barely visible startup to the news behemoth it became in India, winning a slew of journalism awards.

Have 23 years of experience in journalism, and a background in scientific research. I also teach psychology at the undergraduate level.

The current effort, Truly Curious (trulycurious.com) intends to use the wonder of research to engage the intellectually curious of all ages. We hope to have paid journalism school interns work with us on this project once we have basic funding.
