A former, teacher turned journalist and later PR practitioner is now happily retired. She spends her time reading, writing and talking to her plants. Rani is big on long walks and spends her mornings at the Botanic Gardens and exploring park connectors around the red dot. When borders open up, she will resume her other passion traveling. Cooking is therapeutic for her and she volunteers at Live On Purpose and in the pandemic she started learning a new language Urdu to keep sane. Rani enjoys hanging out with friends and discovering places off the beaten track and in the process, anywhere good food abounds. Hence the long walks to burn all those calories.
