Qudsia A. Rana

Papercuts Reportage Editor



Qudsia is trying to live above and beyond several clichés in her life, including this one: ‘the only thing constant is change’. So far life has had the last laugh, so she has chosen to just laugh along.

Moving one city almost every year while growing up, she adamantly refuses to call one place her home but does feel a certain affinity towards Lahore. Maybe because aaloo ke parathay!

As it is with her geographical location, she has ‘moved’ between at least 3 professions, always finding it hard to stick to a single thing.

By education, she is a psychologist and a social scientist. By experience, she has worked as a broadcast journalist, a development professional and a writer/researcher.

The one thing that she keeps coming back to, are words. She loves the art of writing, loves to read and often silently edits text as she reads.

Her dreams for the future include building a life around words, storytelling and the existential questions she loves indulging in.
