I write about philosophy and adult life.

As our lives become confined to our homes and even within them, to screens of various sizes, the balcony is a space that offers respite. That's where you might stand and have a real conversation with a flatmate, or gaze at stars with a loved one. Those are the vibes I'd like to bring to this space, and that's why it's called The Balcony.

I'd love for The Balcony to be a space for great conversations. I write about topics that can help our readers understand the world and/or live better in it.

About me

Hi! my name is Nishant Kauntia, and I'm a writer and journalist based in Delhi. I've worked in the media industry for the past three years, first as a journalist and then on subscriptions and growth. I currently work as a marketer at Amuse Labs, an online puzzle platform that’s used as a crossword puzzle maker by some of the world’s coolest publishers.

Wanna collaborate?

Running a media outlet in 2022 is tough, and doing so single-handedly even more so. If you're someone who'd like to lend a hand, whether to write, spread the word or just hang around, I'd love to hear from you.

"Nishant's newsletter came at the right time for me and helped me answer a question that had been plaguing me for a long time."

"Just read this (piece on intellectualizing emotions) and I must say it has been a bright light bulb kinda moment for me!"
