Amrita Chatterjee is the proud recipient of the only Bachelorette Degree in the country. She decided to become a writer when she realized that her years of dealing with rejection letters had turned her into an excellent judge of human suffering and pathos. As far as genres go, she mainly deals with tragedy and how to bring it out in everyone around her. Her travelogue Special Lassi is a serious attempt at non-fiction.

Special Lassi is the travel journal of two bleary-eyed backpackers who only wanted to get high, get out and have the time of their lives. They never thought that they’d actually get so far ahead. This is probably why India has always been the spiritual motherland of the bohemians and the crazy at heart. There’s just no way you can prepare an itinerary for this country, there’s just no predicting what you might find, or what you might see. All you can do is keep your eyes open and hope that you find that glass of something special at the end of the road.
