Introduce yourself to the readers.
Born and raised in city of Allahabad, by academician father (his book has won the national award) and writer mother; I was always a dreamer and always a story teller. After graduating, I did my MBA and became a marketing professional. The book happened when I was hit by chronic autoimmune disorder, which forced me to quit my job; while the world/society felt sorry for me for losing my perfect skin to a disease, which may or may not cure, I used the time to write the novel. I recuperated as the book finished. Even though my body still carries marks of that illness, but it doesn’t remind me of pain and sleepless nights; it has made me strong and I thank god for that!
Now, I am a mother of an 18 month old boy and I love every bit of motherhood.

What made you write a political thriller? How was your experience writing Ashvamedha?
Head of a political party was mocked for making a comment on ubiquity of politics, his choice of words was little off track, but he made a valid point. Politics is everywhere. Yet, political thriller, is still a lesser read genre. People associate politics with boring stories of old men quietly discussing a government overturn, in reality it about is continuous strategizing, involving dexterity of highly shrewd individuals capable of manipulating and deciding fate of over 7 billion people. It is exciting to read political thrillers and even more enthralling to write one.
