Mihir S. Sharma

Writer & Journalist

Mihir S. Sharma was born in Delhi and grew up in Chandigarh, Mumbai, Jamshedpur and Kolkata. He was trained as an economist and a political scientist before dropping ignobly out of academia. Like many others unable to concentrate on any one thought long enough to write a dissertation, he drifted from one thing to another till he found the closest thing to paid unemployment in a capitalist society: journalism. He now writes the India column for Bloomberg View and is a senior fellow at the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi, where he lives fretfully in an overpriced rented flat.
