Ramya Kannan

Ramya Kannan has over 25 years in journalism, anachronistically in these times, all of them at The Hindu. She is the newspaper’s Tamil Nadu bureau chief, but does not allow the job to be restrictive — continuing to be passionate about health and development issues, which she has reported on steadily through quarter of a century. If the last couple of years have turned the world on its head, then the endeavour has been to make sense of things within this new paradigm. Besides that, she is trigger happy, shooting pictures; has a green thumb, and is always trying to keep up with her effervescent 11-year-old daughter, and only sometimes succeeding.
