Hello hello


By the mysterious wonders of the internet, you've reached the online home of author, journalist and ranter-at-large Deepanjana Pal. Deepanjana was the co-host of the pop culture podcast, The Awful and Awesome Entertainment Wrap. She is the author of The Painter, a critically-acclaimed biography of 'Raja' Ravi Varma, who is one of the first Indian artists to earn the tag of 'modern'. Her first novel, Hush A Bye Baby, will be published by Juggernaut and is expected in 2018. 

Deepanjana has written  about culture and society for a variety of publications over the years. She was the art writer for the magazine Time Out Mumbai, Books Editor of the newspaper DNA, and a Senior Editor and film critic for Firstpost. She's written media critique for Newslaundry, where she was Managing Editor.  In 2015, she was part of the programming team for the World Cinema section of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival and a mentor for the festival's Young Critics' Lab in 2016. 

If you'd like to read more of her writing, a selection of her Articles is here. To find out more about her books, click here. She's also deeply attached to her camera (mobile and otherwise), and you can see a selection of her photos here.  

Deepanjana has written about herself in the third person because it seemed like the adult thing to do. In case you were were wondering, she's the one behind every photo, word and glitch here. She lives in hope that setting up this website will cure her of setting up new free blogs (it's an addiction. Be kind).
