Ira Mukhoty

Ira Mukhoty is the author of Heroines: Powerful Indian Women of Myth and History, and Daughters of the Sun: Empresses, Queens and Begums of the Mughal Empire. While living in Delhi, she developed an interest in the evolution of mythology and history and its relevance to the status of women in India. Mukhoty is particularly interested in the way history is manipulated to suit changing narratives and the need to present historical non-fiction in an accessible way. She is currently working on her third project, a biography of Akbar the Great.
