Rasana declined a traditional publishing contract in order to self-publish. She has been interviewed on self-publishing by many major publications in India. The Media Mentions tab has a sampling of her interviews and reviews. She was also invited to New Delhi for Amazon India‘s launch in February 2014.
She’s been a panelist or conducted workshops at the:

Now on to more personal stuff – Rasana would like to be able to tell her readers that she once stopped a robbery single-handedly, except she’s terrified of robbers. And geckos. And two-year-olds who throw tantrums. When she’s not running scared, she’s mother to a girl and a boy who were respectively six and eleven years-old when they wrote and illustrated The Mosquito and the Teapot. She lives with her husband and children in Hyderabad, India, where a lot of her stories are set.
