Speaker Alka Saraogi at ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival 2018

Alka Saraogi

WRITER

Alka Saraogi is part of the Marwari diaspora. Her first novel Kalikatha via Bypass won the Sahitya Akademi Award in 2001. She has published five other novels, the latest being Ek Sacchi Jhoothi Gatha. She has translated into many European languages and regional languages. Her works wander seamlessly between present and the past to delve into the ideas of identity, displacement and reclamation of the self in a historical perspective. The patriarchal society’s tryst with the corporate world are some of the engaging issues in her last novel.
