I am 30 years old. I have been written about in the New York Times, Business Standard, The Indian Express, Statesman, Mail Today, Metro Now, DNA Me, HT City, Outlook India, The Sunday Guardian, The Hindu, Tehelka, The Hindu Literary Supplement ( featured in the cover story) Midday, The Asian Age, Outlook Mumbai, Time Out ( All Editions) The Daily Star ( Bangladesh), The Daily Times ( Pakistan) and many other leading papers and journals. I have been on newswire twice- once at the time of my book release, and the second time when I surprised everyone by getting four publishers to make offers on a 15-year old’s manuscript on the basis of three chapters only.
I used to review fiction for the Hindu Literary Supplement. In 2009, I was the youngest author on the longlist of the Man Asian Literary Prize for my novel History Of Hate.
