‘Unpretentious, hardly ever loud, sometimes almost a whisper, Rashme Sehgal’s reminiscences, while bravely capturing the past, are firmly linked to the present. Events she covered during her long career as a journalist form some of the links. Her words are bound to evoke feelings of wonder, disquiet and regret in her readers. Taken together they make for a richly experienced, finely observed record of time passing, and of people, hopes and passions that have in the main long passed.’
Rashme Sehgal started her career in the 1970s as a poet and short story writer. She then moved to journalism and worked for leading newspapers like The Times of India, the Indian Post, The Independent, The Telegraph and the Asian Age, where she was Envirnment editor. She has published a book of poetry titled ‘A Home for Bhadrakali and other Poems,’ translated a collection of short story.
