CEO & Principal Agent

I believe, there is no story that has not been written, but the love with which it is narrated makes all the difference. A story ‘well told’ is what I am looking for.

Graduated from the University of Delhi with Bachelors in Commerce, I joined the legendry booksellers – BAHRISONS at Khan Market, New Delhi. After having worked with the bookstore for 20 odd years under the tutorship of Balraj Bahri, I looked at other avenues in the book trade and added a small publishing division called Tara- India Research Press, and a literary agency called Red Ink, to the existing line of business as a bookseller. Thirty-three years after- today, with an all-round experience as a Bookseller, Publisher and Literary Agent - I head the group of BAHRI.

Head of Editorial:

I am always looking for a story that informs, but above all entertains and engages. It should hold you spellbound and suck you into the writer’s world. I read everything from thrillers to fantasy, young adult to historical fiction, classics to narrative non-fiction. Some favourites from an endless list of greats, include Leon Uris, Conn Iggulden, Rick Riordan, EoinColfer, JRR Tolkien, Terry Prachet, James Patterson (of Alex Cross books), Lee Child, Gabriel Marquez, Bill Bryson and Richard Dawkins.

I’ve been a journalist for twelve years and then an Editor for five. I currently spend my time reading and editing manuscripts, looking for that elusive diamond in the rough that can become the next phenomenon or take the world by storm. My motto is tell it simply and tell it well!

Foreign Rights 

Born and raised in New Delhi into a family of booksellers, I am drawn to manuscripts that are textural, providing a sense of culture and feel of the land, but with an international flair. At Red Ink, I focus on developing mostly high quality literary and historical fiction, with a keen interest in women’s writing and diasporic literature. I am also very interested in acquiring debut writing.

I obtained a BFA in traditional Printmaking and Art History from OCAD, Toronto and MFA in Studio Art from Concordia University, Montreal. I also work as an oral historian, archiving memories of those who witnessed the Partition of India, and am the author of Remnants of a Separation: A History of the Partition of India through Material Memory (Harper Collins, August 2017)

Administration

A graduate of literature and currently specializing in Public Administration, I like to read and travel in my spare time. I grew up in Delhi (Meghalaya House) and my family is involved in Government Services, so I always feel the call of the hills and take the sounds of the falling rain from my favourite vacation spot, Cherapungee, with me wherever I go.

Charles Dickens is my all time favorite author and Dr. Ashok Pandey’s autobiography “From inside the Steel Frame” is an inspirational read for me.
