She has written culture-based articles for multitudes of forums. Side by side she also wrote poetry, which was a direct result of the people she met, experiences she had and the situations she fell into.

On the occasion of book launch, Shristi Sainani, Author of Ochre – A collection poem, said “To me, words have the power to break me down and let me shed the wolf skin I glue to my sheep bones. They have the power to strengthen me, make me forget my sheep bones and focus on my lion heart. I find courage when I pen down my poems. I hope for the people who read my book to find pieces of themselves within the words, lines, pages of Ochre. And perhaps a similar sense of empathy, expression brings my way.”
