Interview on Writer’s Ezine: I think I did pour myself quite a lot in the characters of my first novel Dream’s Sake. But the character of Nirvi of Lemon Girl is entirely her how.

Even when she feels that she’s failing herself, she’s still taking bold decisions and choosing her own path. Even in her desperation, and even when she believes that she has nowhere to go, she manages to create a path for herself. That’s like me, I think. I don’t like admitting defeat. And no matter how hard the situation, I try and find a solution for it instead of giving up. READ MORE

Author’s Ink Literary Awards 2015: My latest novel Lemon Girl is based upon the issue of rape and victim blaming. The rising crimes against women and girls in India and the persisting tendency of always laying the blame on the women disturbed me.

Lemon Girl asserts that a victim can’t be treated as a culprit just because she’s a woman. A woman deserves just as much respect as a man. READ MORE
