Hello everyone! Thank you for following me and reading my articles. I’m writing this post so that my readers can learn about me and find links to my popular posts. I recently reached 1K followers on Medium and I’m very grateful that my articles have been useful to so many people!

My preferred name is Thejas Jagannath. I have a Master’s in City Planning from Otago University in New Zealand and an undergraduate degree in Geography from the University of Auckland. I live in both India and New Zealand (and residents of both countries!). My passion for public art and public spaces, started during my geography degree. I have also written two theses on art in public spaces which you can find if you Google my name. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn if you are interested in my professional profile.

On Medium, I write on a variety of topics, and I have also conducted countable interviews with some well-known people and I’ll add links to those interviews below. I also write about some life/career tips and humanities based topics.

I’ve broken down my most popular posts below.
