Author's Interview..Anjali Kirpalani,Never say never fame, Grapevine publishers by Sufia KhatoonWelcome back...
Anjali Kirpalani is a twenty-six year old dreamer. Like the protagonist of her debut novel, Never say Never, she is 5’2 and has frizzy hair but has never fallen for her best friend’s boyfriend (Even if she has, she promises she’s never done anything about it). Born in India, she lived in South Africa for 8 years and finally came back to Mumbai in 2008. She has had various jobs ranging from Radio Jockeying, Business Management, Marketing, TV Reporting, Print Journalism and Voice-Over Artistry. Currently working with ET NOW, writing has been the one constant in her life. She grabs any opportunity she can to travel (This passion has led her to fifteen countries so far and she aims to cover the entire world). She also loves Reading, Eating and Watching back-to-back episodes of Master chef Australia as a guilty pleasure.
Her views on Being bookworms: "I think it is very important for people to read. Reading provides you with answers, entertains you, educates you and opens up your mind. It is said that with the influx of social media and other forms of entertainment, reading will die. But as long as blogs and bookstore like Being bookworms exist, I think that will never happen! People should associate with the Beingbookworms to know what they should read. Keep up the good work, Sufia!" - Anjali Kirpalani,Author
