Shortlisted for the Marina Nemat Creative Writing Award!

So excited! My collection of short stories titled Bee Stings is now with the jury. Click here to read more.

Members of the jury are: Martha Sharpe (Simon & Schuster, Canada), Patrick Crean (Harper Collins, Canada), and Mark Medley (National Post, Books Editor).

Now to find an agent and a publisher. Sigh.

    Reblogged this on Bathurst Muses and commented:
    Anita’s collection of short stories, set in India, Canada and the U.S. is compelling, interesting and absorbing. Fingers crossed for the grand prize–to be announced June 17.

  4. Publishers and agents…take note. Beat a path to Anita’s door.

Living & Loving My Life


Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
