The Whistle

Now in its fifth year, Peripatetic Perch is a blog on business, economics, politics and culture that offers you a wise-eyed view of the world. I am Geeta Sundaram, an advertising and brand communications professional, welcoming you to my blog where you will find plenty to read and think about.
