Sudha Kuruganti has been writing since she was a kid of thirteen, first starting out by writing fanfiction of questionable quality. She's now working on a novel.

She loves books, anime, coffee, chocolate, manga, Beatles music, and dogs. Not necessarily in that order.

When she's not writing, Sudha works nine-to-five at a multinational organization in Gurgaon, India, dealing with corporate communications.

In her spare time, she loves reading, working on various DIY projects, trying out new cake recipes and blogging.

Just as she reached her bedroom door, laughing at herself for succumbing to her childish fears, it was swung shut - by someone who looked exactly like her.(less)

I decided to write what I wanted to read—modern retellings of the myths and legends I grew up with and loved.

I started by posting a story every Friday, using a set of fantasy based writing prompts. My first story, Myth, was on vampires, which I wrote when the Twilight saga was very popular. The idea of a demon hunter like Constantine or a slayer like Buffy coming across a vampire who wasn’t affected by crosses or holy water always made me laugh. So that was what I wrote.

The one-off story got a good response, so I continued with my year-long ‘Indian mythology flash fiction project’, as I called it. When I was done, I decided to publish the best of them in an anthology. And the rest is history!(less)

It’s been a long (very long!) while since I’ve posted anything here – and I do feel shamefully guilty for abandoning this site (and my on-going fanfic). In my defense, I have a lot going on, both personally and professionally, which has made it difficult to keep up with this …

“It’s difficult to fight when you have no idea who your enemy is.”
Sudha Kuruganti, Dark Things Between the Shadow and the Soul: Fractured Fairy Tales from Indian Mythology

“She isn’t particularly beautiful, come to think of it. She’s taller than most women are, and there’s something about her jaw line that throws off the beauty of her face. And yet – the grace of her movements, the flash of her eyes, the way she dances…everything could be forgiven for the way she danced. – Night Dancer”
Sudha Kuruganti, Dark Things Between the Shadow and the Soul: Fractured Fairy Tales from Indian Mythology

“Did you really think you could continue to loot and pillage, Bhasmasura, and your enemies would do nothing?’ On this man’s lips, the title is mocking. Bhasmasura, the name his enemies had given him – a demon who attacked and left behind only scorched earth. The name rings in his ears, and he can feel his blood sizzle in anger.”
Sudha Kuruganti, Dark Things Between the Shadow and the Soul: Fractured Fairy Tales from Indian Mythology

“You all say the same thing. When something bad happens, everyone tells you to forget about it. But, I don't think you can forget that easily. You may be able to pretend you've forgotten, but I don't think anyone can completely forget.”
Fuyumi Soryo

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
Rumi

“Darling? Did she just call him 'darling', or was it 'dahling'? There was no reason to panic. There were plenty of la-di-dah women who referred to their dogs, drivers, and other la-di-dah women as 'dahling'. It was a perfectly normal thing to do in la-di-dah world.”
Shuchi Singh Kalra, Done With Men

“To say ‘I love you’ one must first know how to say the ‘I.’ The meaning of the ‘I’ is an independent, self-sufficient entity that does not exist for the sake of any other person. A person who exists only for the sake of his loved one is not an independent entity, but a spiritual parasite. The love of a parasite is worth nothing.”
Ayn Rand

“Either give me more wine or leave me alone.”
Rumi

Natasha Ahmed Congratulations on being my 100th friend on Goodreads! As a reward for the totally coincidental set of circumstances that led you to this non-achieving position, I offer you a half-eaten jalebi. Please send me your address so that I can have it sent to you. I can't afford a courier, so it will have to be regular post.

Uh, might take a few days (weeks) to get to you. I am not responsible for the condition of any perishable items when they reach you.
