Nivedita Gunturi is a medical intern and freelance writer currently based in Chicago. After receiving a B.A. in English from Tufts University, she is now wrapping up her medical studies and is preparing for a residency in internal medicine.
She is the co-founder of Sangam India (www.sangamindia.org), a non-profit group dedicated to improving living conditions for the urban poor in the slums of Chennai, India.
When she’s not in the hospital, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, in a coffee shop reading anything from the Economist to Herman Hesse, or writing about politics, music, art, books, food and other random things.
You can see her writing in AND magazine, Eburban, Eatology, MVRemix and Livestrong.com, among others.
Stasis, whether in art, life, economics or political culture, was distasteful and to be done away with. Having spent much of the 1920’s doing typographic and book design as well as designing toys and puppets, Sutnar was well-placed to bring his left-of-center, democracy-inspired radicalism to everything from porcelain to book covers.
