At a London pub in November, I had the chance to tell a story to an audience of about 50 people. The event, called Story Collider, was organised as part of the SpotOn conference. The story is about how I moved from India to the UK and went from engineering to chemistry to ending up as a journalist. All this is interspersed with some humour about how Indian stereotypes played a role in shaping me.
