As the first woman editor of India Today between 2011 and 2014, three dramatic years in India's life, Kaveree has always been where the action is. In India Today since 2002, she has interviewed almost every star of note in Bollywood, including miraculously getting articulate interactions out of several usually non verbal actors such as Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. From plotting trends and tracking actors in the world of entertainment, she has observed the changes in the Mumbai film industry and understood the vision behind some of the most transformative movies of our times. In addition, whether it is the India Today Conclave which she conceptualises every year, or the India Today Woman Summit and Awards which she founded, or India Today's Youth Summit, Mind Rocks, which she has taken to cities such as Guwahati and Bhopal, she knows how to get a spectacular group of people together to inspire audiences. She was a member of the CII Women Empowerment Committee for several years and is now jury member of the Women Exemplar Awards of the CII. She is a changemaker for Save The Children charity.
