Nandini Bajpai grew up in New Delhi, India, one of four sisters and many cousins, in a family that liked to read.

“It was a day of sun and shadow. That rarest of monsoon days when sunshine could suddenly streak through the mass of dark clouds to dance on the hills and rivers below. A day for surprises. I told myself I was ready for them.”
Nandini Bajpai, Starcursed

“There are some advantages of being unmarriageable. If you have a liking for mathematics, you needn’t suppress it. If you loathe cooking, you needn’t cultivate it. And, above all, you needn’t worry about leaving your mother’s house for a stranger’s.”
Nandini Bajpai, Starcursed

“I spread out the lehenga fabric into a perfect circle on the living room floor. It looked like a pool of blue silk spangled with gold and silver. Then I raised my best pair of scissors.”
