Neelima Dalmia Adhar - Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF)


Neelima Dalmia Adhar has written Father Dearest: The Life and Times of R. K. Dalmia; her father, the first Indian owner of The Times Of India, was the renowned Marwari industrialist, Ramkrishna Dalmia who had six wives and eighteen children. Her second book, a novel, Merchants of Death, exposes the underbelly and duplicity of the perceived-to-be chaste, highly religious and overtly orthodox Marwari society. The Secret Diary of Kasturba is her third book that promises a fly-on-the-wall peep into the life of the wife of the Mahatma.
