Afterwords – Writing and Identity with Krishna Udayasankar

  • Marine Parade Library 278 Marine Parade Road Singapore, 449282 Singapore (map)

Writing is often a means of asking and answering tough questions. For Krishna Udayasankar, many of those questions have to do with her complex, multi-cultural, multi-national identity. Her Aryavarta Chronicles series of books has been a way of recasting an Indian epic tale to remove all divinity and make it relevant to the socio-political context of current times. In her latest novel, 3, a work described as "Haruki Murakami with an LED focus" by the media, she takes on her struggle to map her identity as immigrant Singaporean — not unlike our nation's founder Sang Nila Utama. 

Join Krishna Udayasankar as she talks about the questions that drive her writing and ask her some questions of your own — who knows, you might inspire her next work! This session will also be moderated by guest writer Theophilus Kwek.
