I have worked with Tashneem when she was at the Hindustan Times and later on a book project.
She is sharp, bright and talented.
Tashneem brings a positive attitude to her work, is committed and sincere and can be relied on to get the job done. It is always a pleasure to work with her!

Tashneem is an extremely hard-working, responsible and committed journalist. She’s also game for all kinds of professional challenges and difficult assignments, plunging into them with enthusiasm. I have the fondest memories of working with her and wish her every success for her website.

Tashneem, I can say with confidence, is leading a new wave of lifestyle journalism that combines the power of the social media, which we did not have access to in those early days (1990s-early 2000s), with good old independent, reportage-based, knowledge-intensive writing.

I remember Tashneem as a young and enthusiastic lady, eager to learn the nuances of journalism. The year was 1998 or so – I was the Editor of Northeast Daily, an English daily from Guwahati, and it was her first job. What I remember about Tashneem and something that stayed with me was her determination to make it in the world of journalism and her realisation early on that there was no short cut to success. I followed her rise in the profession, moving over to Delhi and working for some of the country’s leading publications. This was no surprise for me because that was what Tashneem was made of – working hard to achieve her goals. I wish her all the best in her latest venture and I am sure she will pursue this with the same passion as she began more than two decades ago.
