Who Are We … And What The Heck Is A Pickle Jar?
Meet Vasanthi Hariprakash, Pickle-In-Chief
Vasanthi is a seasoned journalist, radio host, and storyteller who can never say no to a good conversation. Legend goes that she can even talk to (and extract responses from) a rock.
Pickle Jar, founded by Vasanthi in 2016, is an extension of her life philosophy – a little bit of everything that makes us think and feel deeply… a little bit of everyone that makes us a vigorous, thriving community. Like an Indian pickle jar, it is a mélange of ingredients, fusing into that perfect blockbuster of flavour!
