Podcast on Writing with Rahul Desai

I got an opportunity to speak to one of India's finest writers Rahul Desai. I have read a lot of Rahul's writing from the year 2015 when he used to write for Mumbai Mirror but have personally known him since 2016 when I started contributing to his site India Independent Films. We have never spoken to each other in the last five years except via email. I love talking to writers about their writing process. When he suggested a podcast, I thought it will be a great opportunity to learn from him. There is a bit about me in the end as well. Check out the following links for more details.

Dialogue of the Day:
"Good writing is remembering detail. Most people want to forget. Don’t forget things that were painful or embarrassing or silly. Turn them into a story that tells the truth."
—Paula Danziger
