Aatish Taseer

Aatish Taseer

Contextualize yourself in one line?
A writer trying to make a whole of his past, and the past of his place.

First memory of writing and what was it on? 
A story based on four sisters of mixed marriage who hung themselves in a small town in Madhya Pradesh. It came out of something I read in the New York Times. I was nineteen, and at Amherst.

An event from the past that has most influenced you?
The 1947 partition of India.

First realization of the 21st century?
Y2-What?!

Three things people will be surprised to know about Aatish Taseer?
1) I’m a nervous traveller.
2) I used to be—for my love of dharmic films—known as the ‘bhakt’ in Green Park Market.
3) I once went skinny dipping in the pool of Buckingham Palace.
