‘The Pied Piper of joie de vivre’ is how Bindu Dalmia christened herself. Mentored in the ‘Shiv Nadar factory of mind-machines’, as she calls it, she worked with HCL in its nascent years. She later chartered her course in living life on her own unconventional terms. The lessons she learned in practicality and of managing her estate and finances, led her to an avid and absorbing interest in keeping a pulse on the zeitgeist of the times, tracking with great interest the state of governance and economy. She writes as a guest for the Economic Times blog, a space that is offered by invitation to leading luminaries in economics, politics and judiciary, and also writes occasionally as a guest for Mail Today’s editorials, part of the India Today group.
Through her writings she addresses varied issues about a world in transition, through the prism of a contemporary woman’s worldview. This is her debut novel.
