As an immigrant from India to the United States of America, Sita Bhaskar straddles two cultures and is drawn to the startling differences and surprising similarities between these two cultures. She uses this vivid and colorful palette in her writing to explore human relationships and travels alongside her characters as they deal with the challenges of living in a global world. From this ‘in-between’ space that she inhabits, she watched her characters juggle the tug and pull of both cultures.
Sita Bhaskar is the author of two books: Flirting With Trouble, Shielding Her Modesty. Her short story, “Swayamvaram,” which appeared in Crab Orchard Review was listed among “100 Other Distinguished Stories of 2007” in Best American Short Stories (BASS) for 2008.
