Sunil K Poolani, a journalist for the several years, has worked with The Sunday Observer, The Financial Express, Blitz and The Free Press Journal — all Indian newspapers —in senior editorial positions. Presently he runs Frog Books, an imprint of Leadstart Publishing Pvt Ltd, based in Mumbai. Frog Books was founded in March 2003. He has (un?)successfully survived a decade-and-a-half in Bombay, the city he loathes and loves. He was born in Kerala, the southern state of India, and is a fundamentalist when it comes to protecting Kerala culture, literature and cuisine. Poolani is the editor of two books (The Rape of News; Urban Voice: Essays from the Indian Subcontinent) and is the co-author(with Supriya Madangarli) of Narmada Diary. Apart from that he has published a collection of poems in Malayalam, his mother tongue. He has acted in street plays, wrote screenplays, and painted and sculpted some vague artforms when he was young. He was associated with a radical left-wing movement, something he considers as a joke now. He can be contacted at poolani@gmail.com
