  3. Dear Nilanjana Mam,

    Greetings from IIT Bombay!

    MOOD INDIGO, the annual cultural festival of Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay is the biggest college cultural celebration in Asia. Continuing with its 41 year old legacy, Mood Indigo’s next edition will take place from 20th to 23rd December this year. Mood Indigo has been successful in attracting a footfall of over 80000 every year, featuring a plethora of events with more than 200 international artists from over 20 countries having graced the Mood Indigo stage hitherto.
    In an attempt to give an intellectual edge to Mood Indigo, apart from its well established entertainment quotient, we plan to host a Literature Festival at Mood Indigo this year. Actually, madam, our idea of a literary festival is to take it beyond books and include genres with a youth connect like food, travel, journalism, blogs, Bollywood, etc.
    As a part of this literature festival, we are planning to hold an event on journalism. Investigative journalism has been an important part of people’s life for a long time, majorly because of the revelations made to the common public, and the essence of truth it carries. However on the other hand, investigative journalism is getting increasingly money driven and this dependence has rendered a depletion of truth overall. Hence we are planning a discussion on the following lines – Truth v/s the Money: Investigative Journalism in India.

    Mam,we have always admired the opinions and thoughts that you come up with on your shows and we will be humbled if you could grace the occasion.We are pretty sure that your vast experience and knowledge will lend the event a whole new dimension making the discussion joyous for the audiences. Having said this I request you to seriously consider my request.

    Humble regards,
    Shreyas Mangalgi

  4. Hi Nilanjana,

    I am a documentary maker based in UK. I am thinking of pitching a documentary proposal to the BBC. Just read an article by you in the UK edition of the Sunday Times. Would it be possible to contact you privately please?

    Thank you,

  5. Nilanjana, I read most of The Wildings a second time starting early this morning, with my own 15 year old cat on my stomach as we watched the sun come up through the rain in Gurgaon. I just wanted to commend you, as I have done silently before, on your writing but most of all, on your sensitivity, and ability to put yourself into the paws of these glorious creatures that allow us to share their lives. I have more dogs than cats, really 1 cat, but he rules the roost, is a source of intense joy together with his canine siblings. So much of what you write I have felt – I see the difference in the two cats that inhabit our bougainvillea and Sandy, my ‘inside’ cat (that is on my own selfish account – a rogue childhood has seen him in so many scraps that I am too frightened to allow independent jaunts anymore, so he’s always accompanied by a Bigfoot – he doesnt mind but it doesnt compare Im sure). I hope you will write on the better of us again soon and until you do, I will continue to enjoy portions of The Wildings. God bless you.

  6. HI Nilanaja,

    Read your book, loved it. I wanted to check a certain ‘literary pursuit’ with you. Is it possible to get your contact details. I am from your college a couple of batches senior, I think.

  7. Hie Nilanjana,
    I would like to get in touch with you regarding an interview. Could you please provide me with your e-mail address so I can mail you the details.

    Thank you,

  8. Dear Ms. Roy, I was referred to you by Alison Smale, formerly of the IHT and now the NYT bureau chief in Berlin. I am a professor of European Union asylum and immigration law at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, Italy and an old friend of Alison’s. I have also published op/eds on migration in the IHT and have been interviewed by the IHT and the NYT as an expert on EU migration issues.
    I have received a grant from my university for a month long research project in India, principally in Delhi, to investigate asylum and other human rights issues. I also do a good deal of pro bono asylum counseling for asylum seekers in Italy and other EU countries. In this light, I am particularly interested in the effects of the Dec. 2013 re criminalization of homosexuality, especially under the new Indian government. I will be arriving in Delhi on Oct. 9.
    I would sincerely appreciate being able to meet you to discuss this matter in detail. If a meeting is not possible, I would appreciate your referring me to other parties who may be able to help.
    With best wishes,
    Dr. Bruce Leimsidor
    Professor, EU Asylum Law and Practice

  10. Dear Niljana,

    I am Shashank from HarperCollins Publishers India. I would like to get in touch with you via e-mail.

    Could you please share you e-mail address? Or alternatively write back to me.


  11. Dear Nilanjana,

    I’m studying Indian chick lit novels for my PhD and I understand that you were involved in the publication of some of the early novels in genre. I would like to get in touch to learn more about the publication of the novels. Could you email me or let me know how I could get in touch with you?



    1. Dear Charmaine,

      Good luck with your PhD — but I wasn’t involved with publishing early chicklit, much as I’d have enjoyed
      the process. It’s possible that editors at HarperCollins, Penguin and Rupa might be able to help?



  12. Dear Nilanjana,

    I was pleased with your last publication in the FT. Since 2010 as a French Artist I am working on Light Pollution issue and the lost of Darkness. The “Darkened Cities” series has been shown worldwide, in galleries and institutions. If you are interested to see the work here is my web site link:
    I have not worked yet in india but it could be an interesting opportunity, to insert some of you major cities in the series.
    Looking forward to your reply
    Thank you
    Best wishes,

    1. Dear Thierry,

      My apologies! I missed an entire set of comments, and have only just seen your warm mail.
      Your work seems very interesting, and thank you so much for the link.
      I wonder if you might want to apply to Khoj some day, if you would like to work in India?
      Here is a link:

      Warm wishes,
