Bio

Author, Journalist and Commentator, Saba Naqvi has written three books. In Good Faith, published in 2012, chronicles a two year long journey across India in search of syncretistic traditions and pluralist communities. It is the book closest to her heart. Capital Conquest, 2015, is about the emergence of AAP, the so called citizen’s party that now rules Delhi. Her third book, Shades of Saffron: from Vajpayee to Modi, released in June 2018, chronicles the journey of the BJP that Saba covered for two decades. It’s a first hand account with the author as the primary source of news and information and has profiles of all the leading figures in the BJP’s ascent to power.
Saba is a known election analyst, political commentator and columnist in leading newspapers and TV platforms.
