Team Kitaab is in conversation with Indian author Sonia Bahl as a part of the South Asian Women Writers Feature.

For the whole of March, we will be featuring South Asian Women Writers on Kitaab for the whole of March. You can read the editor’s note to know more about this.

Today, we are featuring Singapore-based writer Sonia Bahl.

Born and raised in Kolkata, Sonia has lived and worked in Mumbai, Delhi, Jakarta, Miami, Brussels, Johannesburg, and Singapore. With home being everywhere and nowhere, her belief in the power of the moment became a religion. An affirmation that unexpected and undeniable human connections are everything. A theme that permeates through all her writings in one way or another.

Sonia has spent a huge chunk of her life, her days, and sleepless nights in advertising—writing ads for all things from coffee and cars to condoms and candy—while dreaming of morphing 30-second commercials to full-length feature films. No surprise that she threw caution, and her full-time job—Executive Creative Director at McCann-Erickson—to the winds and embarked on a riveting, rejection-filled screenwriting journey in the US.
