I retired in 2008 as a professor German and European Studies from Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont. Originally from India, I have taught on three different continents: Asia, Europe, and America. My scholarly books include "India: The Seductive and Seduced 'Other' of German Orientalism" and "To Veil or not to Veil: Europe's Shape-Shifting 'Other'." In 2008, I turned to writing fiction. The first of my children's books, "Lalli's Window," has just been published by Austin Macauley in Great Britain (2017). The first of a series of murder mysteries featuring two older South-Asian women as super sleuths has also been published this year by Juggernaut Books in India: "Murders Most Matronly."
