Sheetal Parmar

Hi I’m Sheetal and I have an apology to make. I really should have introduced myself 5 months ago when I first started working at WHYS, but I never really got round to it.

Krupa Thakrar

pic 1I’m affectionately known on the World Have Your Say team as Marshmallow, mainly because I thought houses were built on stilts for ventilation and because I accidently bought a real crocodile’s head on a work trip to Florida. If you ever get to meet us, I’m sure you’ll hear the stories.  Continue reading ‘Krupa Thakrar’
