As a Communications Officer in the World Bank’s Africa Human Development department, Kavita works on health, education, and social protection. Prior to her current position, she worked with the Bank’s Development Economics department, distilling the messages from various reports such as the annual World Development Report. In both jobs, she has tried to bring social media into her daily work and that of others. Before Kavita joined the Bank in 2001, she was a freelance journalist in India for several years. Reading and writing are the things she most enjoys; her first book, Brahmins and Bungalows: Travels through South Indian History, was published by Penguin India in 2004. She also likes to tend plants and hike with her dog.
