About Me: I am Mangala Gouri, an Indian woman, wife and mother. I was born in 1967. I am a Gold Medallist and work as a Lecturer in the Indian Himalayas. I wrote three books, all of which are available in amazon.com--"The Night That Changed Everything" ,"The City of Widows & Other Stories" and “Aparajita—The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won.” All three books offer insights into the life of Indian women-their resilience, grit, and hope in the face of hopeless odds. I wish to write, write, write, to bring alive the institutionalized exploitation inherent in my country, and to question both the stoicism of Indians and the apathy of the world community to needless suffering. More of my books will be 'out' soon. I hope to write about the issues that really matter to us all.

My Passions: Writing books about the things that matter.

My Challenges: I have a job, a husband, a son in the engineering college, and to find time to write is the biggest challenge!

My Vision for the Future: To write books which will showcase the women of India to the world.

My Areas of Expertise: English, biology, comparative religions.
