Biographical Notes

During a three-month trip across India in 2005, Margot Bigg became mesmerized by the sheer diversity of the world's largest democracy, and decided to make it her home. A year later, she was living in Gurgaon, near Delhi, where she worked for a consultancy before joining the staff of Time Out Delhi and turning to journalism full time. She has since written for publications in India and abroad, including Rolling Stone, Outlook Traveller, The Caravan, Courrier International, and The Oregonian.Margot's interest in other cultures started from an early age: Her best friends as a toddler were from Japan, Iran, and Jordan, and her baby talk was mixed with Japanese, Farsi, and Arabic (all of which she has since forgotten). She's a dual national of the US and the UK, and spent her formative years living in Portland, Oregon, and Farnham, Surrey, in England. She also lived in Paris for three years before moving to India. Margot holds a master's degree in contemporary European studies from the University of Bath and Sciences Po Paris. When not busy writing, Margot spends her time traveling, practicing yoga, exploring new music, and trying to improve her Hindi language skills.
