Avantika Debnath is a corporate professional who gets drunk on good reads. Having devoured Khaled Hosseini, Erich Segal, Amitava Ghosh and Jhumpa Lahiri, she finally figured out that writing is the only thing she can find solace in. She also has a crazy side to her personality, with zero tolerance for hypocrisy and open denial of truth. Her first book, The Bridal Pyre - Nainam Dahati Pawakah is a battle against such evils. She speaks her mind through everything she writes and she writes it like she means it.
