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. Her dynamic career in the media has taken her across bustling newsrooms and quiet soundproof studios to vibrant metropolises, small towns, and villages in India and beyond.

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!
