MyKitaab is THE podcast on book publishing in India.
When my wife and I were trying to get my novel NRI:Now, Returned to India translated into Hindi and Marathi, we found it very difficult to find the right translator, editor and publisher. We realised that there are many authors who are faced with a similar dilemma. This is how MyKitaab was born. We envision it as a means to connect authors with readers and booklovers who prefer to read in Indian languages. Three times a week, we will interview authors, editors, translators and publishers, who will share their insights on the market for books in India.
When we talk about book publishing in India, one must also note that there are atleast six or seven languages that are spoken by over 50 million people. That is the population of six or seven times the size of the population of France. As the podcast matures, every month we will learn about one of the six languages and help authors understand how to sell their books in these languages.
