My name is Lavanya Mohan, and I am a Chartered Accountant and Freelance Writer from Chennai, India.

I write primarily about Lifestyle, Travel, Social Media, Mythology, Books, Television, Pop Culture and Personal Finance. My writing has been published in Elle India, Architectural Digest, India Today, Outlook (Web), and The Hindu, among other publications. I’ve also been a contributor with Buzzfeed and PopXO. You can see the full list of my work that has been published, here.

I blog about money, budgeting, personal finance, among other things on PennMoney.

I began writing (rambling is more accurate) on my blog, Chutneycase, way back in 2007. My personal blog continues to be a sporadically updated log of all the ways I’ve embarrassed myself as well as observations and other stories about my mostly uneventful life. You can read it here.
