Founder, CEO & Editor-in-Chief, Fair Observer

Atul is a bit of a modern day Renaissance man with eclectic experiences in many countries and multiple professions. It is for this reason that a Googler introduced him as “the most interesting man in the world” before his prescient talk on the global rise of the far-right in August 2016. Atul is the founder, chief executive officer and editor-in-chief of Fair Observer, a prestigious independent media platform with more than 2,000 contributors from over 80 countries. He has also taught at many institutions, including the University of California, Berkeley and the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar. Atul has also been an IPS officer in Nagaland and Kashmir as well as a lawyer in London who worked for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and White & Case, two leading international law firms.

Importantly, Atul was ahead of the curve in observing and analysing the rise of populism in the form of Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump. Educated at the University of Lucknow, the University of Oxford and the Wharton School, Atul is an orator, a deep thinker and a world explorer. He has spoken at institutions such as the United Nations, Google, Deloitte, Harvard and MIT.
