Recently we interviewed author and lawyer, Sushruti Tripathi on her new book, ‘Naan Bread and Chai Latte’.
Naan Bread and Chai Latte is a collection of poems (interwoven with prose). It covers her experience of working at Herbert Smith Freehills, London (while missing home) and the time after that. The book deals with themes of finding your feet- both professionally and personally, and of trying to make sense of the times we live in. It asks questions on identity, the meaning of home, chasing dreams, love, loss, and life. It is self-published along with Notion Press.
Listen to our conversation, where we discuss:
The idea behind the book and the process of publishing it.
Tips for writers wanting to self-publish.
Life at HSF, London.
The intersection of law and art.
(And a poetry performance by Sushruti!)
Sushruti Tripathi is a climate change and energy lawyer, poet, and dancer. Passionate about arts in education, she divides her time between environmental law and working with children to enable creative expression. She is currently teaching a credit course on Climate Change at her alma mater NUJS. She loves good conversations and chai.
The interview was conducted by Umang Poddar, an Editor at Lawctopus.
