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

Are debut novels the worst or the best of an author's work?

The dictionary calls a debut "a person's first appearance or performance in a particular capacity or role." And an author is a "writer of a book, play...etc" This could be taken to mean that a debut author is one who has written a book for the first time. This is how the public sees it.

This is highly unlikely. All authors have written something or the other before their book goes out in the p... Read more of this blog post »

“Women got along. Their very tolerance was their insulation against isolation.”
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
