ornamentAcademic & Creative writer

I grew up in Kolkata, India, where I have spent most of my life – save for a decade in Amsterdam.

I live to read and write. I have inherited a stubborn teaching gene from my parents, and am enjoying every bit of growing up with my daughter.

New Book: Gariahat Junction

My maiden work of fiction, Gariahat Junction, is due to be published soon:
It is a collection of ten short stories, of contemporary Indian women who have reached a critical juncture in their lives. Set primarily in post liberalized, post-millennial Kolkata, it mostly explores the lives of middle-class Bengali women in or from the city.
