His first novel, the Point of Return, is semi autobiographical in nature and is set in a fictional hill‐station that closely resembles Shillong in India's Northeast. His second novel, Surface, also set in Northeast India, is about a disillusioned Sikh journalist. His first non‐fiction book, The Beautiful and the Damned: Life in the New India was published in June 2011 by Viking Penguin.
