remember. After doing her Master’s in English Literature, she got sucked

into a journalism career that took her to Southeast Asia and Europe with

Bloomberg News.

newspaper Mint and then ran a national television channel before setting

up her own content strategy consultancy. She has written two books, and

published with both Penguin Random House and HarperCollins.

She is a co-author of What's Your Story? The Essential Business

Storytelling Handbook published by Penguin Random House. It was a

category bestseller for several months.

Her second book, Onam in a Nightie: Stories from a Kerala Quarantine, was

the bestseller on The New Indian Express books list, a must read on’s list, and category bestseller on, in the travel and

humour sections. Her writing has been compared to RK Narayan and

William Faulkner by critics.

She is a columnist for several business publications including The

Economic Times,, Business Standard among others.

She likes people more than gadgets, dogs even more than people and slow

life over hurried living.

A British national, Anjana divides her time between Delhi and London.
