About the Author

 

Subhadra Sen Gupta has written over thirty books for children including mysteries, adventures, ghost stories, comic books and books on history. To her surprise, the Bal Sahitya Akademi thinks she is doing a good job and has given her the Bal Sahitya Puraskar in 2014. Right now she is waiting for a time machine so that she can travel to the past and join Emperor Akbar for lunch. She can travel , flirt with cast and chat with auto-rickshaw drivers.
