Well, the plethora of renowned authors in the JLF 2015 are sure going to make you feel like a kid in the candy shop wanting to have it all. To ease your life and to make sure you don’t miss out the best here we are with a list of 7 Indian authors you shouldn't miss this season:
1. Amish Tripathi- He has been in the list of top 100 celebrities in India by Forbes twice in a row for a reason. His books brought about a revolution among the youth for mythology. His books entered the top selling charts within a week of their launch. His soft spoken demeanor and simple personality communicates his clear and crisp ideas in a unique manner.
2.       Sudha Murthy- Highly acclaimed, very knowledgeable and still grounded. A writer whose words portray wisdom acquired by her experience. The series of medals by her name are just a small token of her intelligence.
3.       Devdutt Pattnaik- A jack of many trades, he is a mythologist, a writer, a columnist and famous face of talk shows. A man whose theories can actually transform the system of a lot of sectors in India. His revolutionary ideas on Indian education system and the concept of religion in India proved as an eye opener to many.
4.       Esther David- A winner of Sahitya Academy Award, she is a single mother and a grandmother of two. She writes about Bene Israel Community of India and her work is often quoted as illumination of communities from an outer perspective. Her views on feminism and religion make her a frequent honourable guest in conferences and summits.
5.       Ashwin Sanghi- A renowned writer of thriller and suspense fiction, he is another writer featured by Forbes as a Forbes India Celebrity. His fast paced story, strong characters and gripping narrative style often gets him tagged as the Dan Brown of Indian literature. If you read and liked his work in The Krishna Key and Chanakya’s Chant you wouldn't want to miss him in JLF.
6.       Amit Chaudhry- A writer who has bagged numerous awards for his writing including the Commonwealth Writers Prize, the Encore Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the Sahitya Akademi Prize, and the Infosys Prize for outstanding contribution to literary studies. An intelligent contemporary writer with progressive thoughts, we expect it to be a full house during his talks.
7.       Deepti Kapoor- A rather new fish in the sea, Kapoor is a debutante writer of her novel ‘A Bad Character.’ Her work has a distinct non linear narrative structure and rather honest descriptions. A small town girl grown up with the city, she is quite a representation of most girls that rebel to be themselves in the world guided by the society.
