Shoba Narayan owns a cow. She also spends a lot of time thinking about how to improve her memory, and become fit without exercising. She is the author of four books, Monsoon Diary, Return to India. Katha and The Cows of Bangalore. A long time ago, she won a couple of awards, which allow her to conveniently add the phrase ‘award-winning author” to her books. She is a columnist for HT Brunch and has written for a number of publications. She is an alumnus of the Columbia Journalism School, Mount Holyoke College and WCC. She spends her spare time chasing cows off road dividers and evangelizing A2 milk to anyone who will listen.
