She has been active on social media, voicing her opinions and starting a conversation about social issues, body positivity, mental health, feminism and political problems prevailing in India and around the world (sometimes with a touch of humour).

She announced her resignation on Twitter on 11 June.

We rounded up the best of her time at Buzzfeed and beyond:

In an illuminating piece, she related her own struggle of being the butt of jokes for her Americanised accent to when the internet mocked Priyanka Chopra's accent in Quantico.

Here's an article where she recounted each time a woman is stopped from exercising her independence - that a simple statement 'made out of concern' always has an underlying meaning to it.

She also made readers nostalgic about the 90s in a hilarious take on a supposedly 'missed detail' in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge that really could have changed the iconic scene from the film.

Talking about body positivity, acceptance of body hair, she busted a myth or two about the stereotypical perception of femininity.

She called out publications for their sexist coverage of Kate Middleton's visit to Amar Jawan Jyoti in April 2016.

And finally, here's (our favourite) tweet about being proud of a sisterhood that is working hard towards achieving their goals and not backing down.
