Drishti Rana (TYBA)

Being an economics and psych student, I am inclined towards understanding decision making within the realm of finance and investment. Owing to the fascination with the mechanism of human psyche, I take pleasure in traversing ideas advanced by theorists, and philosophers or just having a good read( mostly Kafkaesque/mystery). Apart from that, I write, I paint, and do whatever entices the heart.

I’m Kripa, an Economics enthusiast who loves to do anything with numbers. You’ll catch me playing sports or just having coffee/food with my friends and still I’ll be running around all over the place, with a witty sense of humor. Nonetheless, someone who’s looking to expand their economics horizon and someone who is always down to help with absolutely anything!

Samarth Khanduri (SYBA)

I am a finance and business enthusiast with a knack for writing on the most abstract economic ideas. I find myself in the constant struggle of achieving a balance between having too much to do and being an unproductive sloth. Nevertheless, a gritty attitude and an ability to multitask is always there to help!
