Ellora and the Runes of Regeneration

2022

'Ellora and the Runes of Regeneration' is a young-adult fantasy fiction novel written by French author Valérie Gaudart. It follows the adventures of Indian-born protagonist Ellora Tradag, who finds herself suddenly transported through the magical Worlds of Air, Water, Earth and Fire to discover that she has hidden powers of her own. I translated the entire book from French to English to help it reach a global audience.

Seva - Sikh Secrets on how to be good in the real world

2020

For this popular book published by Juggernaut, I worked closely with Sikh author Jasreen Mayal Khanna as developmental editor on the manuscript. I helped her distill her extensive research and divide it into digestible chapters—each centred around a single rule—with the view to making the final product a practical yet easy and grounding read. The book currently has a 4.7 star rating on Amazon. View

Book Review

2019

'These, Our Bodies, Possessed by Light' is the debut novel of Indian writer Dharini Bhaskar and has been longlisted for the 2020 JCB Prize for Literature. I wrote a short, early review of the book for The Free Press Journal. It tells the story of three generations of women in dense prose interspersed with lyrical passages drawing from mythology. View

Decline and Fall of Neoliberalism

This academic book published by Routledge is an in-depth analysis of the intellectual underpinnings of neoliberalism and its future in a context of economic and social upheaval. I helped the author, French economist David Cayla, on the English translation of this timely book, providing extensive editorial assistance and critical inputs so that it could be a clear and natural reflection of the French original.

Film Review

2018

'Dhadak' is the Hindi remake of the acclaimed Marathi blockbuster 'Sairat', directed by Nagraj Manjule. I wrote a long-form critique of the two films for the Sunday cultural edition of The Herald, Goa. In it, I argue, by using translation as a metaphor, that the remake dilutes the damning social commentary of the original. View

Lethwei

2018

Photographer Martial Couderette followed a group of Burmese Lethwei fighters over several years. I translated from French to English the text accompanying the beautiful black and white photographs that resulted from this long cultural immersion. My English translation also served as the base text for further translation into Burmese, as the final photobook is trilingual. Buy the book!  View
