    Sorabh Pant
  • “It’s been a difficult year. Maybe every writer thinks they’ve had to wage epic battles to get published! I just know that whenever I was in trouble I could turn to Mita and Siyahi and they’d be there, with me in the trenches! Thank you for consistent good advice and wonderful support.”
    Pradip Krishen
  • “Very satisfied…wish I was exclusive.”
    Devdutt Pattanaik
  • “As far as I am concerned – speaking as a little known Sri Lankan author – Mita Kapur and Siyahi have been solely responsible for getting me known to a much wider audience South Asian audience. They have ferociously championed my work and given me a much needed boost of confidence by finding an international publisher for my work. Bravo, and please keep up the good work – there are many more of us undiscovered authors still lurking in the backwoods!”
