In her three-decade career, Paromita has worked as a director, writer, actor, installation artist, curator, and teacher, consistently breaking new ground. She has always believed that one can chart their own creative and intellectual path in the world, defying categories with a flower in their hair and a twinkle in their eye, which makes her one of India’s best-loved feminists and pleasure activists.

Apart from being the creative force behind award-winning documentaries and a screenwriter for Khamosh Paani, Paromita has been listed by Time Out as one of the 10 people who have changed how Indians watch films. Her films as a director include the landmark Unlimited Girls (2002, on feminism in India), Q2P (2006, on toilets and gender), Morality TV and the Loving Jehad (2007, on moral policing), and Where’s Sandra? (about stereotypes of Christian women), among many others (listed below). In 2013, she directed the cutting-edge documentary-style prime time TV series Connected Hum Tum, where women shot their own lives for a year.

Paromita has been a widely read columnist in Monday Mirror (How To Find Indian Love) for four years and has been writing the opinion column ParoNormal Activity in Sunday Mid-day for over 12 years. Her work has been shown at film festivals and universities around the world and also been exhibited at the Tate Modern, The Wellcome Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art, India.
