Hi. I am Nita. My journalism career started with freelance work for the Times of India and Deccan Herald in Bangalore, and later for The Statesman (Kolkata). I worked part-time for The Telegraph (Kolkata), and A&M (Advertising & Marketing Magazine). My full time work was with the Economic Times and Business Today. I have also free-lanced for magazines and other mainstream Indian newspapers.

My creative writing continued even as I worked as a journalist. Quite a few of my short stories were published in newspapers. One of these stories has been published in a textbook by the Educational Department of Norway for the Upper Secondary.

The Hawa Mahal Murders is my first novel. I am currently writing a sequel to this.

I am also an experienced hand-

A Writing Mind

Writing is a lonely job. In fact, loneliness is a prerequisite of sorts, isn’t it? At least for me, it is. Unless I am alone in my own quiet space, I find it difficult to write. Actually, loneliness is not the right word because it has a negative slant to it. The word “emptiness” describes it better…a kind of vacant feeling which takes away the clutter and noise of the outside world. The mind is o

“Women got along. Their very tolerance was their insulation against isolation.”
N.J. Kulkarni, The Hawa Mahal Murders

“Death from afar appears serene but it's an illusion. Death rips the soul from the body leaving behind just the casing.”
N.J. Kulkarni, The Hawa Mahal Murders

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Women got along. Their very tolerance was their insulation against isolation.”
N.J. Kulkarni, The Hawa Mahal Murders

“All good books are different but all bad books are exactly the same. I know this to be a fact because in my line of work I read a lot of bad books - books so bad they aren't even published, which is quite a feat, when you consider what is published.
And what they all have in common, these bad books, be they novels or memoirs, is this: they don't ring true. I'm not saying that a good book is true necessarily, just that it feels true for the time you're reading it.”
Robert Harris, The Ghost

“Death from afar appears serene but it's an illusion. Death rips the soul from the body leaving behind just the casing.”
