Writer and Editor in London, United Kingdom
I have been a journalist for 15 years and am working on my first novel, The Insignificance of Good Intentions. It won "The Write Stuff" Award at the London Book Fair 2015. Set against the backdrop of caste-based politics and corruption in India, it is the story of a disillusioned romantic who is sent to prison on a false charge. I worked as a news reporter in New Delhi before moving to London a decade back. I work at the London-based publishing company, Informa, as editor-in-chief of Agrow. My time spent as a reporter provided the idea for my novel, which is based on a true story.
