Nandana Sen as a writer
The range of Nandana Sen’s work stretches beyond the norm. But it does reveal one thing about the author-actor-activist: She never sits still. A career spanning around two decades, this artiste has no plans of stopping. Nandana has gained fame in the Indian film industry both as an actor as well as a screenwriter. Besides being involved in cinema, she is also a children’s book author. She has written quite a good number of books for children. Among them, “Not Yet!” and  “Talky Tumble of Jumble Farm” have come out this year, and a couple more are yet to be published. Her other children’s books include “Mambi and the Forest Fire,” “Kangaroo Kisses” and “Youthquake: Stories.” Nandana is well aware of the immense reach that books have on children’s imagination. In an interview with Khaleej Times, she said: “Children’s books open up such a rich world of imagination and wonder; at the same time, the influence of kids’ books is enormous.” In many of her talks and interviews, she stresses that an author is able to create a whole new world of wonder and imagination for children.  While most of her books have primarily come out in English, there have been translations in many different languages all over India. As stated above, Nandana is not one to stay still and she is always having more than one creative project in hand. But the one she is most excited about is a project called ‘Mother Tongue,’ which is basically a book about three generations of Bengali women who have shaped and are shaping the literary world. She is collaborating with her mother Nabaneeta Dev Sen on this project. With all that she has got going on her plate, Nandana Sen is not our run-of-the-mill author, or actor, or child rights’ activist. Nandana reshapes what it means to be an author, be it writing for children or adults. She has set the bar for all the things she engages in, and she does them all with magnificence.
