Maneesha Agarwal (MVG) is a well-read and widely-traveled writer, who started her journey with pen through a few published travelogues. She has also worked as an editor (English language) with an autonomous government body for three years. MVG always had a penchant for deep thinking, leading her to study Sanskrit to gain insight into the Indian school of thought. This, coupled with her erudite fascination for history and exploring obscure places, has prompted her creativity to carve a fable out of folklore, which she presents in her first book, From Zero to One.
