Doshi received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College (nowadays Queens University of Charlotte). She earned her Master of Arts degree in creative writing from the Johns Hopkins University.
Doshi began her career in a school in India, where she choreographed ABBA`s "The Winner Takes it All" for a talent competition and shared first place with a guy dressed as a ghost. For several years she participated in the Madras Gymkhana Club swimming galas in the synchronised swimming event with a candle on top of her head.
She moved to London in 1999, becoming assistant to the advertising department of Harper's and Queen magazine. In 2001, Tishani returned to India and became a dancer with the choreographer Chandralekha. She was the lead dancer in the Chandralekha Troupe from 2001 to 2016. Doshi toured with Chandralekha`s final choreography "Sharira", performing on stages across the world from Tokyo, Taiwan, Champaner, Bhopal, Bombay, Munich, Kolkata, Toronto, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Sydney and Madras.
In addition to her dancing career, she published her first poetry collection "Countries of the Body" in 2006. Then Tishani's first novel "The Pleasure Seekers" was published in 2010. Since April 2009, she has been writing a blog titled "Hit or Miss" on ESPNcricinfo, where she makes observations and commentaries as a television viewer of the second season of the Indian Premier League.
Doshi wrote a fortnightly column about books for the New Indian Express called "Notes From Nowhere" and a monthly column for Open Magazine "Cue the Violins". She has written for The Guardian, The New York Times, The Hindu, The Weekend Financial Times, Vogue, Elle, India Today, The National and Corriere della Sera. In 2012, Tishani represented India at a historic gathering of world poets for Poetry Parnassus at the Southbank Centre in London.
