Writer | Creative Brand Strategist | Global Speaker | Digital Content Curator


Finally, you are here! What took you so long?

Welcome to my website. Allow me to tell you more about me. I am fondly anointed as Vani Kabir - The Modern Sufi by people who love to follow what I do. But what many don't know is that with many upheavals in my life, writing became my weapon of choice. This website is my collective. It is created to showcase the different facets I possess - be it writing, strategising how to launch a new product or giving an inspiring talk. I create to find peace and deliver it through my writings. I believe that you heal through diagnosing what you feel and then working your way around it.

You will relate to my work if you are brave hearted, have made an oath with creativity to live creatively forever, wear your heart on your sleeve, have learnt from heartbreaks, never looked down upon anyone and are thriving to make this world a wee bit better by your efforts.

I am currently working as a Senior Creative Director at a leading advertising agency in New Delhi. I am proud to have won numerous awards for my work in advertising and I am now taking up skill enhancement courses from Stanford Continuing Studies in-order to finish my first fiction story.


My beginning and onwards.

I was tattooed with writing when I was born. It has been my longest desire to be a great writer and a person people relate to when finding for the right emotions, inked. Currently, I am an advertising professional, a career that started more than a decade ago. My work has honored me with some of the most prestigious awards of this fraternity like The One Show Design, The Cannes, The New York Festivals, Graphis Gold Annual, ABBY'S and Spikes Asia to name a few. After multiple heartbreaks and endless life upheavals, I decided to go all out and help people through my writing and storytelling. I have more than a hundred forty thousand people following me on social media. I am always active and ready to help if someone is dealing with certain emotions that are making them vulnerable.

I am also a global TEDx speaker, TEDX AUP - Paris, being my recent talk.

I have completed NanoWriMo writing  and a novel writing course from Stanford Continuing Studies, which helped me complete the draft zero of my first fiction book.

I am a happy & proud #singlemother of a boy & delightfully use his name as my last name.


“Put simply, I write to give myself strength. I write to become the people I am not. I write to explore all the things I am afraid of. I write because it's good for my heart. ”

Some very known people decided to spill the beans about me.


The writer is a weaver of words. They take the threads of words, and weave them into a pattern that could fill another person’s mind with beauty, sadness, landscape views, future, zeal or simply awake consciousness, bring motivation and create an array of emotions and responses.   The mind of the reader laces the words together until the imagined or real intent of the writer is achieved. The writer provides a zip-line between two minds. The reader is either transported happily into the world of the word weaver, or the reader examines the word garment, and places it abruptly back on the rack. No matter what takes place in the mind of the beholder, the writer has visited the mind of another.
