Nanditha Ram is an India-born (and raised), New Zealand-based writer of short fiction. She has a background in English Literature and Journalism. She also writes regularly on yoga and wellness. Her blog of six years on the same subject has now become a book manuscript (The Story Behind the Pose: Transforming Consciousness Through Yoga and Narrative). She would like very much to write a collection of food stories and heirloom recipes, the idea for which has emerged from her inborn, combined love of incredible stories and terrific food.
Nanditha realised that she wanted to be a writer at the age of eleven, when she wrote an essay chronicling a journey through a remote village in south India in a rickety jeep during peak monsoon. She started writing short stories in 2014. Her first short story The Tree-wife went on to win a prize at the NZSA Asian Short Story Competition. Since then she has written a collection of short stories titled Freedom, at a Price and a novella, The Bodhisattva’s Tusks. She loves writing short fiction and Fairlight Books is the first to publish her literary work. She now lives in beautiful Golden Bay, New Zealand, with her husband and two children.
