Shashi Deshpande

Shashi Deshpande was born in Dharwad, daughter of the re-nowned dramatist and Sanskrit scholar, Shriranga. At the age of fifteen she went to Bombay, graduated in Economics, then moved to Bangalore, where she gained a degree in Law. The early years of her marriage were largely given over to the care of her two young sons, but she took a course in journalism and for a time worked on a magazine. Her writing career only began in earnest in 1970, initially with short stories, of which several volumes have been published. She is the author of four children’s books and six previous novels, the best known of which are, The Dark Holds No Terrors and That Long Silence, which won the Sahitya Akademi award. Shashi Deshpande lives in Bangalore with her pathologist husband.
