Nandini Sengupta is a Pondicherry-based writer and journalist. After a chance trip to the Ajanta and Ellora caves in 2007, she began researching third and fourth-century India, initially out of mere curiosity and later out of interest, which quickly deepened into an obsession with India’s glorious past. An avid reader of the historical genre, she has been researching for The King Within for the past eight years. Already a published author with several non-fiction titles to her credit, this is her first work of fiction. Nandini is forty-nine and lives in Pondicherry’s quaint French quarter with her little daughter Kiki.
