Poornima Kumar - Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF)


Poornima Kumar works as a Youth Mentor at Samvada – Youth Resource Centre, Bangalore, sensitising, empowering and mobilizing youth for social change. With a Master’s in Women Studies from TISS Mumbai, her interests lie in research on gender, development and sexuality.

When not at work you’ll often find her strumming the ukulele or moonlighting at Urban Folk Project. Her curiosity for the performing arts has led her to take up the ‘chowdki’ and other instruments as a part of ‘Yellamma and other stories’.
