Shobhaa De


Shobhaa De has monitored and written extensively on India’s socio-cultural-political contours for over four decades. Her twenty books include several bestsellers like ‘Starry Nights’, ‘Spouse’, ‘Superstar India’ and now, her latest, ‘Seventy…. and to hell with it!” She is a prolific writer, columnist, blogger, social commentator and opinion shaper with a vast Twitter following of close to 3 million. It is often said that one tweet from her can – and does – shake up Parliament. Her feisty, irreverent style has made her a powerful icon, widely respected for her fearless and independent opinions.
