Author - Chethan Kumar

Chethan KumarChethan Kumar is an Assistant Editor (Space, Science & Defence) with the Times of India. Aside from his primary beats, he has been writing on varied topics, with special focus on policy and data stories. As a young democracy grows out of adolescence, Chethan feels, there are reels of tales emerging which need to be captured. To do this, he alternates between the mundane goings-on of the aam aadmi and the wonder-filled worlds of scientists and scamsters, politicians and Jawans.
A journalist for more than a decade, he has written stories from multiple datelines — Kochi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Sriharikota (AP), NH-1 (J&K Highway), New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Raichur, Batkhal, Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, to name a few in India — but is based out of Bengaluru, India’s science capital that also hosts the Isro headquarters.
