Aparna Ray · June, 2010

I am a researcher who loves to travel across Myriad Spaces and highlight stories from South Asia. Passionate about cultures, people and issues related to ICT4D, governance, community, gender and social inclusion, you will find me ever willing to engage in a good conversation over a steaming cup of tea. I have also served as a volunteer representative on the Global Voices Board of Directors.
