Praise for Anu Majumdar’s books:
Auroville tells the story of caravan style days when a city of the future was dreamt from the red earth of Tamil Nadu. Charting the journey from those pioneering times, Anu Majumdar interweaves individual stories along with the Mother and Sri Aurobindo’s expansive vision, giving us an insider’s perspective into this most extraordinary utopian experiment. Written with wisdom and diligence, this is an indispensable chronicle of the continuing adventure that is Auroville.

  • Tishani Doshi on Auroville: A City for the Future

This is an insightful take on a bold and enigmatic experiment: a city with a dream to meet the challenge of the world.

  • Anita R Ratnam on Auroville: A City for the Future

God Enchanter ranks among those novels in recent years which engage with the harsh realities of the world today and leave us with a message of hope. It proves that literature survives hate and wars,
and through literature, life.

  • Tabish Khair  on The God Enchanter

Funny, quirky, poetic:

  • Yann Martel on Refugees from Paradise

Wise and yet refreshingly unpretentious

  • India Today on Refugees from Paradise

Majumdar creates an evocative search for personal spirituality… remarkable for its intensity.
