Have you met Anita Desai?

It's an honour not easily won. Which is why, when three time Booker nominee Anita Desai was named a Sahitya Akademi Fellow, we realised it was time to know her anew.

And what better way to know her than through the eyes of those of you who have met her, interacted with her, developed a relationship with her?

You may have met her in India before she became a celebrity.

You may have met her during her book promotion tours.

You may have been her student, or you may have heard her lecture.
