Committed to changing gender dynamics, and articulating injustices, this truth appears in every piece of work Saumya does. Whether it is her bilingual poetry, shows and series on language of sexism on Gurgaon ki awaaz- Gurgaon's community radio station, articles published in The Wire, Deccan Herald, Feminism in India, The Quint amongst others, or even her lectures on Gender and advertising and popular culture, she puts her unrelenting gaze on how the world must first recognise the problems, accept their privilege, and then alter thought to create a more inclusive version of the world. She is an advertising professional and believes that it is thinking itself when creating the ads, that must be more inclusive, and that drives her to create the work she does. Also a street theatre artist, she goes into the heartland of the country for different projects, understands the issues and then creates work there with local residents, that instigate thought.
