Pritish Nandy

Born in Kolkata, where he spent his young years as a poet, Pritish Nandy shifted to Mumbai in 1982 to join The Times of India as Publishing Director and Group Managing Editor. Between 1998 and 2004, he shared his time between Mumbai and New Delhi as a Member of Parliament. He lives in Mumbai with his books, his dogs, his family. You can meet him on twitter or at the occasional art show, a corner bookstore or at a movie premiere, usually his own. Else, he celebrates his solitude.
