Gaurie Dwivedi is a seasoned journalist, columnist, author and a classical dancer.
She has worked in all major print and broadcast companies like Economic Times, Business Standard and The Sunday Guardian. With over 16 years of experience, Gaurie has covered a variety of issues ranging from public policy to diplomacy. She was part of the senior editorial team that launched ET Now- India’s leading channel.
She is presently associated with two major think tanks in India, the United Services Institution of India (USI) and India Foundation, where she has been working on issues related to strategic and security affairs. Besides these, she has recently begun writing for Gateway House, one of India’s premier think tanks focused on geo-economics and geo-technology. She has curated and moderated important discussions with Hudson Institute, RAND Corporations and several other think tanks on vital strategic and security issues. She is also the consulting editor with WION.
‘Blinkers Off- How Will The World Counter China’ is Gaurie’s first book where she has identified the biggest strategic challenge facing the world and also provided a roadmap to address the same. She was inspired to write Blinkers Off due to the gap in present literature which has largely focused on the military dimensions of China’s threat and not adequately addressed the non-military dimensions of the threat. Gaurie hopes the book will serve as a catalyst to start a larger discussion in policy circles, academics and media for a 360 degree perspective on China.
Gaurie writes regular columns in the Times of India, Daily Pioneer and appears on several national channels.
Being a multi-faceted personality, Gaurie is also an artist and is recognised by Govt. of India’s Ministry of Culture as a classical dancer in their outstanding category.
