Anita Krishan is an author, writer, poet, and columnist with a unique perspective towards storytelling. She worked as an educator for twenty-five years before deciding to devote full time to her passion for writing. She is a senior columnist with The Indian Economist.
Born in Shimla in 1955, she spent twenty-two years of her early life in this pristine Himalayan town. Her journey with narrative led her to write and direct plays, pen down novels, stories, and poems.
