Coming to national prominence as Singapore’s foremost anti-racism advocate and writer, Sangeetha is known for coining the term “Chinese Privilege” and explicating the theory behind the term in order to analyse institutionalized racism in Singapore. She has written extensively on the topic and is currently working on a PhD on Chinese Privilege and racism in the Global South.
Along the way, her interests have expanded to include issues of gender, the body and colourism, colonialism and the Global South, all topics she continues to write on. While she is most known for her political writing, her first love is fiction and she brings these themes and issues into her fiction as well.
This is where my interest in politics begins. We want to be able to live in this world even with those we disagree with. My writing seeks to uncover those whose voices have been silenced and to shed light on that which we rarely talk about. Hence I have a wide range of interests from ranging from race and gender to fashion and music.
In all of this, I come at it from a unique viewpoint and eye.
Unlike other bloggers, I am not selling you a version of myself. I am a multi-dimensional being, as are you. I assume you are interested in more than one aspect of life. Hence, this blog shows you my fashion sensibilities, my politics, my writing, and even my personal thoughts.
This blog does not showcase just one part of me: this is the real me: and I am interested in finding out the real you.
Hence, I invite you to come live your most authentic life with me.
