Description for The Secret Diary of Kasturba
About the Author
When Neelima Dalmia Adhar wrote Father Dearest: The Life and Times of R.K. Dalmia in 2003, she was on the bestseller list and labelled a daredevil “family chronicler” who had exposed some fiercely-guarded secrets. She then wrote a novel, Merchants of Death in 2007 to be established as a mistress of the genre.
Educated in a convent school and a reputed college in Delhi, she has a Master’s in Psychology with a specialization in “Personality”. Her first and only job was to teach Psychology to undergraduate students of Delhi University.
A passionate “people-watcher”, she is drawn to oddities and thrives on writing about personalities and human behaviour, from the quirky to the mysterious to the bizarre, a subject she does chillingly close to the bone.
She lives in Delhi with her husband, children and two grandchildren.

and helped us gain Independence from the British But his personal life was affected by his neurotic beliefs---about sex, upbringing of children and so on. Kasturba hated lifting commodes of others, which he forced her to do. She did not like his decision to be celebate from his late 20s onwards. She disapproved of his sleeping nude between 2 of his younger female relatives who were also nude. He wanted to test that he had overcome sexual feelings absolutely. But one night he awoke trembling because he had ejaculated. His elder son was neglected, and died a drunk. His other sons were home schooled by him. He was a great man, but in personal life, not very wise. A great read.
