Visiting Senior Fellow

Sreemoyee Piu Kundu is a celebrated author known for her critically acclaimed and pioneering works. With a background in lifestyle journalism, she has made significant contributions to prominent publications like Times of India, India Today, Midday, and The Asian Age. Sreemoyee has also been instrumental in shaping editorial strategies for publications such as Metronow, a collaboration between Hindustan Times and Times of India.

After a successful career in print media spanning over a decade, Sreemoyee transitioned to the field of public relations. She held key positions, including leading the Media Strategy Division at Genesis Hanmer Marstellar and heading the Entertainment and Lifestyle vertical at Hanmer MSL.

Sreemoyee made her literary debut with “Faraway Music” in 2013 and followed it with “Sita’s Curse,” a book that explores female desire through the lens of a Gujarati housewife. Her works have established her as a prominent voice on gender and sexuality issues in India.

Her third novel, “You’ve Got the Wrong Girl,” is a light-hearted romantic comedy that added a fresh perspective to Indian ‘lad-lit.’ In 2017, she ventured into non-fiction with “Status Single,” a widely acclaimed narrative based on the experiences of 3,000 urban Indian single women, shedding light on the daily challenges faced by unmarried women in a society where marriage and motherhood are often considered the ultimate validation.

Sreemoyee’s latest work, “Cut,” delves into the challenges of government censorship and the fight for artistic freedom in the life of a theatre activist. “Cut” was adapted into a play and performed at Delhi’s prestigious National School of Drama under the direction of the legendary theatre director Abhilash Pillai.

Sreemoyee Piu Kundu is a recipient of the NDTV L’Oréal Women of Worth award for Excellence in Literature and the United Nations Woman Young Achiever for Literature. She has been signed by Bloomsbury to write her memoir, “Unhealed,” and has recently completed an inter-generational family saga set in Kolkata, titled “All Our Other Lies.”
