Inspired by her community-centric roots, Rumin founded chit.chaat.chai in 2010 as a pop-up restaurant to share the time-tested wisdom of Ayurveda through a community meal. Shortly, after she attended graduate school, at the University of Toronto, where she received her Masters in Museum Studies. After a few years, in the museum world, she felt a calling to revamp chit.chaat.chai into a digital publication and share Ayurveda’s empowering knowledge on a global platform. Inviting experts in the fields to contribute content and converse about holistic living and wellness through the lens of Ayurveda.
