Vithya

Vithya was a graduate in South Asian Studies and Political Science from the National University of Singapore. Here, she explored various fields including the memory of violence, center-state relations, place making, the visual, and the practiced. In these, she found herself constantly being returned to thinking about the Sikh community and Punjab. It is as an extension from this that she has also turned to looking at the Singaporean Sikh community. Currently braving the seasons in New York City though, Vithya is a Masters student in Columbia University where she continues to think about violence, memory and place.
