Orenda flash fiction based in modern India

Author Name: Shalaka Kulkarni | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

This is a gallery of local Indian markets, Gajras and peppermints. It serves Metkut and adhesives on a dinner plate. There are earrings on soft boards and Marlboros on the college canteen floor. It has Ghungroos on a Christmas wreath and embroidery hoops stuck in rusty buses. It echoes the walls of a boho apartment and art classes in kaleidoscopic brothels. 

This is a gallery of the supernatural, divine, extraordinary and inherent – the power within us and all living beings – of Delivery Executive Manju, Architect Gargi, Professor Miller, Vagabond Bilva, Security Guard Amar Chacha and umpteen.

This is Orenda.

This is us.

A whirlwind of crazy chaos, a dialogue in the digital world, and the first ray of the sun - ‘Shalaka’ hails from India’s orange city Nagpur, calls Bangalore’s purple skyline her favourite muse and every window seat her favourite abode. She has been passionate about writing since 8, and Orenda stands taller as a milestone, starting her literary journey as an author. 

This sanguine writer is also an artist, TEDx speaker, marketing professional and has been associated with big brands across the globe. She was honoured with Women Disruptors 2021 award earlier this year and is currently exploring the canvas of neuromarketing and spoken word poetry. She often forgets that she has a degree in electrical engineering. 

Kulkarni strongly believes in the spirit of giving back. Has been recognized for being an impactful volunteer. She organized a fundraiser with her paintings for feeding the hungry last year and aspires to launch more ‘art for greater good’ initiatives in the near future. She is also serving as the core committee member of Kalinga Literary Festival.
