Junior Crew

Tejal Khullar
Writer
Tejal is full of good vibes and good advice. An amazing writer, her writing is marked by an element of elegance that is rarely seen. She might seem funny and mischievous, which she completely is, but her resolute disposition is rendered when the time calls for it. Tejal carries herself with such a vibrant and jovial demeanour. When it comes to having fun, no one parties like she does. She lights up a party like no other. Her talent in writing is perhaps innate, she is one gifted storyteller. She’s a girl you can just walk up to, start a conversation and expect to be accepted as a friend by the end of it. Also, she has the best nose in all of the MTTN family.
Priyanjali Roychoudhury
Writer
This wildly effervescent, and yet paradoxically reticent lump of joy hails from Assam, but identifies as a denizen of Kolkata. Her interests lie towards any and all art forms. She originally joined MTTN as an artist, but quickly found her tastes more suited to writing artistic and creative pieces. Priyanjali’s growth as a writer in MTTN is unmatched by any, and her passion for learning more is a constant source of inspiration. She also loves listening to Metallica, Guns ‘n’ Roses and the likes, and can safely be labelled as the most adorable person in MTTN you’ll come across.
Pranav Parashar
Writer
The most beautiful thing about this guy is his humility. It does not matter if you think his question is silly, he is going to ask it anyway. That is perhaps why is absolutely brilliant at what he does. An amazing writer and extraordinary artist, this silent guy (we'll let you think that for now) lets his work do the talking. Irrespective of whether people agree to him, he will raise his point without hesitation and is flexible enough to let his opinion be changed if need be. He will tell you straight if he does not like something about your work, along with suggestions for improvement, and will also be the first person to appreciate you duly for every good piece of work you produce. He is a pretty deep thinker, and a perfect example of the phrase - once a friend, forever a friend.
Shravani Vyakaranam
Writer
A true dreamer, she weaves stories with her vivid, and brilliant imagination. One of the most emotionally mature people you'll ever find, you can count on her if you need someone to never give up on you. Though she appears sane outside, she is a closet lunatic; a side few know of, but is enjoyed by all those who do. She has a penchant for everything violet, except she always wears black; quirky, eh?
Agnihotra Bhattacharya
Writer
Hard working, talented, confident are some of the many adjectives people use to describe Agnihotra, but to MTTN he's more than just another efficient writer, or a good designer (he's both, by the way). He's a dependable friend; that family member who'll always deliver when needed. His Bengaliness is evident from his tasteful choices in music, movies, and food. He can sell his soul for biryani and chicken. At the end of the day, he gets the job done, and that's what we're all about. Agni is a workaholic and is as fierce at his work as his name suggests. He is passionate and always looks forward to try new things.
Ayush Agrawal
Writer
Omnipresent and cracking his rather deprecating jokes, Ayush Agrawal is the one who sets a new bar to multitasking. From writing to web development to Public Relations, his abilities know no boundaries. Ever ready to lend a helping hand with a smiling face, he has easily become everyone’s go- to guy. His jokes even at the most depressing of times have the ability to make people feel worthwhile for they did not just crack that joke. Clearly, a wholesome package of poor jokes matched with a grin of 32 teeth.
Shagun Nevatia
Writer
Behind those broad-rimmed glasses(not exactly) you'll meet one of the most down to earth guys in college. Shagun loves micro-managing while being a lazy ass ( figure that paradox out). His penchant for the Latin language is unparalleled. The thing that describes Shagun the best is his way of life, which is built on relationships and friendships. They might sound sappy but he sincerely believes in the fact that good work comes from good people. Not good as in the talented sense, but "good" as in people who value camaraderie, loyalty, ethics. To top it off, he's one of the best writers in MTTN and yes he's partly Bengali.
Nabilah Husain
Writer
Possibly the quietest of the writers, Nabilah Husain is a writer who’s up for pretty much any kind of work at any given point of time. Upon getting to know her better, you’ll find that she’s a rather introspective person who’s also incredibly kind-hearted and fun to talk to! Getting mistaken for her twin has become a routine in her life so mundane that she pretty much almost expects it (but don’t think for a second that she’s okay with it!). She remains the living portrait of the brilliant worker who shuns the limelight.
Debleena Ganguly
Writer
If you want to learn to party like a bong, maintain a perfect balance between friends and beau, sleep like a pig and still achieve good grades, Debleena is the person. Extremely amiable and gregarious. Manipulative in a good way. A very carefree and impulsive soul. She has a heart as naïve as that of a child. Extremely photogenic. That's the doe eyed Deb for you.
Gargi Pandey
Writer
I am a kiwi, soft from the inside as well as outside. Not a fan of dogs, but I love fishes. I am also Obama obsessed - so much that I named my fishes Michelle and Obama. *DON'T JUDGE*. I am better than Katrina Kaif! When I'm drunk, that is. I can be lesbian for Candice Accola. I'm also the best friend anyone can ask for! 😉

Mayank Agarwal
Photographer
The current Joint Secretary of the student council, Mayank is known for being a hard worker. But don't be fooled by his polite demeanor and general knowledge. He knows exactly how to party and when. If you want to trap Mayank in a room cover it with iPhones and fill it with food from Labonel, his two true loves in life. In all seriousness, he's the one person you can count on when you need a reality check and sound advice. Besides his Photography, which is brilliant, he enjoys travelling, drooling over food, spending time with his closest friends, arguing over whether Nikon is a better brand than Canon, photobombing other people’s selfies and having a good time in general.
Chirag KS
Photographer
For someone who fell in love with his camera way back in 9th grade, Chirag's zeal for photography goes far beyond merely a skill he has perfected. Apart from participating in events and winning numerous photography competitions, he's also a member of the Indian DJI Community; from covering the land to conquering the aerial, his DJI Phantom (quadcopter, for the layman) is now his new love-interest. This Udupi-boy is crazy about travelling, bikes and his car, and has a soft spot for cats and dogs. A fun-loving and passionately driven guy, Chirag views the world through the lens of perception.
Niharika Nayak
Photographer
Photographer, Radiohead-fan, and overall badass. She is like the photos she clicks: raw. Though she comes across as a cold, blunt person, she is a sweetheart who still subscribes to the idea of old-school romance. An idealist, her mind is just as fickle as the streaks on her hair. She's also a major Tarantino fan, and is proud of both, the poster collection, and the room which is adorns.
Fida Tanaaz
Photographer
Bubbly, upbeat; she can hardly be spotted without a smile on her pretty face, and will always help you out. Though she can be a bully at times. She is obsessed with black and white photos. Something not many people know about her is that she likes cars; Maserati and the likes.
Samar Dikshit
Photographer
"You live once, might as well have all the fun you can" was his mantra the last semester. Then he developed a food baby and now he says, "Please make a list of healthy things I can consume. “One of the most fun people in class to chill with. One hell of a tutor. Charming even with that crooked denture of his. Can't lead a monotonous life. Gets bored way too quickly. Only on rare occasions do you see Samar dancing and downing shots like a pro. I've been privileged to witness him do the same. A photographer and a damn good one. But never expect him to take pictures for you. 500 days of Summer, and many more.
Rohan Paithankar
Photographer
Python or PetNicker as people like to affectionately call him, at first glance may seem like shy guy, but he is full of his own brimming crazy energy. A rational thinker who is also filled with a childish curiosity for the world around him. He is a connoisseur of good food especially any kind of sweets. Mixed with this is his fondness of velvet suits and color dark blue. So any time you want a long ride in car with good food at end of it, Rohan is your guy.
Manan Dhuri
Photographer
Manan is a certified troll and lives for moment he can put under meme captions. Anime hogger and chicken lover, he can be either found sitting in his room watching tv shows or at remote locations taking pictures of whatever captures his imagination. He also aims to be caught by radical group and be beaten up for his scandalous jokes.
Nishant Sahoo
Photographer
Walked across a kid trapped in an adult’s body and smiling with his eyes wide open and an umbrella as tall as he is that could encompass the town of Manipal? You just met the multitalented Nishant Sahoo. From photography to running around in videos, he is probably hovering somewhere and everywhere. Working with him is as easy as taking a stroll. Also, he is a repository of dark humor, passionate enough to make a whatsapp group about it. Now you know whom to laugh with if you have dark humor.
Myria Mathew
Photographer
She's quiet at first but polar opposite once she gets comfortable. She loves biriyani, baking and enjoys old Hindi songs. A brilliant photographer, her camera and her guitar are her babies, and Chris Martin her bae. Though she likes her personal space, and cannot entertain company for too long, she is a sweetheart to her friends, who will all agree that the world needs more Myrias. Also, ask her who's the Princess of Croatia (spoiler: it's her). Kidding, but there's a story to it.
Paul Nandadeep
Photographer
An artist in every aspect, Nandadeep Paul is the epitome of the quiet genius behind the camera. Born with an innate passion and talent for the visual arts and design, Paul studies Automobile Engineering. In his spare time, he researches photography, editing and the likes, and creates concept artwork of futuristic cars and motorbikes. A purist, he believes that photography lies more in vision than in technique, which is a metaphor for how he views much everything in life.
Yashvardhan Singhania
Photographer
With a wild passion for photography, videography and design, this Calcutta boy is one of the most prolific photographers MTTN has seen. In the team, this budding IT engineer is the silent guy who doesn’t really care much for the limelight, but just goes about doing his job well. The other things he’s well known for are a large appetite and having the name most reminiscent of a Bollywood anti-hero – one you aspire to be as cool as, but are also kind of afraid of.
Arun Raj
Photographer
Arun is a curious person by nature, maybe that’s why travel bug bites him so much. Other than being a photographer, he also worked as the associate director & actor for a friend's Telugu movie, now that’s cool. And on of top of this he never cancels on his plans, and always greets with you a smile, making him human equivalent of warm fuzzy cotton candy.
Rakshith Acharya
Photographer
Rakshith Acharya is a photographer who hails from the Faculty of Architecture, and true to the stereotype, his artistic vision does indeed spill over to photography. He’s a very simple guy who believes in the quality of his work above all else. He also quite famously does portrait photography and is adored by all of FOA because of the beautifully unique way in which he carries that out.
Dhruv Verma
Photographer
One truly gifted photographer, his photos range from the rawest expressions to star speckled night skies. He has a special talent for astrophotography. When not clicking photos, he would be reading up on world politics. He has a brilliant (sometimes silly) sense of humor and is one of the nicest human beings evern known to mankind. Just don't tell him that NCR is not Delhi (because it is).
Shivangi Narain
Photographer
The one person you can count on during an apocalypse. Whatever you want, Shivangi's got. Whether it's last minute migraine medicine or a memory card for your camera. When asked what her favorite things in life are, she'll reply with Loki, her precious Cocker Spaniel and spicy food. The best way to get her to do any kind of work is to offer her pickles and pizza. Preferably together. Often tagged the most responsible of the gang, she's known for her punctuality, hard work, infectious smile, perpetually short hair and being the self confessed Wikipedia of the group. This girl knows everything from why the sky is blue to how to fix a picture that's completely underexposed. (PS: She's also a pro at Portal and Dragon Age).


Saloni Suchdev
Public Relations
Also known as our in-house fashionista, is known and loved for her lively personality and indisputable charm. She brings the phrase ‘good things come in small packages’ to life. Her personality is complemented by her calm demeanor, as she handles the most precarious situations with absolute ease. She is a very free spirited, warm and giving person, which makes her an easy favorite. Her hobbies include singing, watching films and stalking hot people on Instagram. Be careful not to piss her off though, she is quite the pataka!
Naveesha Bharadwaj
Public Relations
“Is that a bird? Is that a starfish? No! It’s just Naveesha dancing about characteristically with her arms flailing all over the place!” A meticulous perfectionist through and through, Naveesha’s chirpy and jovial nature hides beneath it an erudition acquired and honed through years of studying classic literature, along with pretty much anything she could get her hands on. She prefers cats to people (much as any sane person should), swears by staunch vegetarianism and has a loyal affinity for the color red. This budding Chemical Engineer hopes to one day make it to Harvard. Or Ashoka University – whichever happens to catch her fancy at the moment. Naveesha’s skills at dance are matched only by her skills at acting and her love for old-school hindi music. Despite her vast knowledge of highbrow prose and poetry, given a translator, she’d give the average Irishman a run for his money at a swearing competition. Fiercely independent, strong and surprisingly deep, it is perhaps this intriguingly beautiful combination of 30 % nutty, 20 % weird, 30 % smart, 40 % adorable (and a 100 % bad at math) that makes Naveesha Bharadwaj such a joy to be around, and among the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet!
Yash Maheshwari
Public Relations
Yash is the perfect combination of smart and suave, blending to form the perfect concoction for an incredible PR and a great conversationalist. A dank meme maestro, this guy's humour is as on-point as his Marwari business skills (all in the genes). It doesn't take much to keep him happy- give him some good food, a Coldplay playlist, a couch and FIFA, and he'll be content. Perhaps one of the most tranquil people you'll ever cross paths with, Yash harbours an impressive sense of pragmatism, even in the face of unnerving scenarios (as long as you don't make him watch two men kiss #NoHomo). A simple and genuine man at heart, he has an easy-going vibe to him, and is sure to bring a breath of calm in the midst of chaos.
Abhishek Krishnan
Public Relations
The man with the plan. Everyone's favorite PR guy. When it comes to multitasking and making new friends, Abhishek’s your guy. With an affinity for books and an inkling for adventure. Regardless of his exuberant personality and child like smile, he's the one person who'll travel to hell and back just to get the job done. Despite his claims of being an introvert, he's always everyone’s first friend and he's the one who sticks by those people. Although his frankness and Slightly short temper can be mistaken for rudeness, he has a heart made of platinum (because platinum is more valuable than gold). If you were to put Abhishek in a room full of strangers, he's guaranteed to come out an hour later with 3 best friends, 5 good friends and numerous acquaintances.
Shreyan DC
Public Relations
A biryani connoisseur himself, Shreyan has sworn to castrate anyone who doesn’t believe that the Kolkata Biryani is the best. Apart from this, he is also a formidable quizzer who claims that he was not always pear-shaped. All in all, this cuddly PR person is all the ‘pyaar’ you’ll need at MTTN.
Azeen Khan
Public Relations
Hailing from Jamshedpur, she bears the dignified demeanour of having been raised in a convent. She’s usually sweet and charming, but can also be strict when required, making her the perfect negotiator. Combined with her incredible efficiency, Azeen Khan is a force to be reckoned with
Nisha Narayanan
Public Relations
Nisha 'nishuuu' Narayanan is a purple-spectacled short girl hailing from the School of Communication. An efficient PR person and a brilliant dancer, Nisha is a perfect blend of pure passion and humility. Rarely seen without a smile, one conversation with Nisha will keep you smiling the entire day. Usually quiet at first, Nisha can be very talkative once you get to know her. A genuine kind sweetheart, Nisha is someone you'd want to be friends with.
Nathan Silva
Web Developer
Nathan is one of those people who belong from Goa but have never tasted alcohol. Apart from this fact, what surprises everyone is his calmness and perfection in his work. He is the man behind the MTTN website who does his work quietly and doesn't talk much.
