Aparna Piramal Raje is the author of Working Out of the Box: 40 Stories of Leading CEOs. She is a regular columnist with Mint and has previously contributed to the UK’s Weekend Financial Times for several years. Over the past decade, she has fostered an awareness of design, especially workplace design, in companies in India. Now Aparna aspires to leverage her lived experiences of mental health to make a difference in this sector.
Part memoir and part self-help guide, Chemical Khichdi provides a pathway for anyone with a mental health condition and the family, friends, colleagues, and medical professionals that love and care for them.
Empathetic, candid and accessible, it outlines ‘seven therapies’ that have enabled Aparna to ‘hack’ her mental health and find equilibrium over the years and shows how you or someone you know can also do the same.
