Arefa Tehsin spent her childhood treading the jungles of Aravali with her naturalist father. As a child, she was often found trying to catch a snake or spin a yarn. She grew up to be a story-spinner and was appointed the honorary wildlife warden of Udaipur for a term. She is the author of several fiction and non-fiction books, and writes columns and articles for various dailies and magazines. A dreamer as well as a rationalist, she is a serial traveller who wants to go on an endless journey, starting with Planet Earth. (Irrational for a rationalist? Ask her companion, Aditya!)
