Kalki Koechlin turns writer with memoir on motherhood

Indian actor Kalki Koechlin known for her brilliant acting in movies like “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, and “zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” steps into the shoes of a writer with the ‘The Elephant In the Womb’.

On the occasion of Mother’s Day, the actress shared the news. It is a memoir about motherhood. It consists of a series of both personal essays and thought provoking pieces. The book sheds light upon topics like parenting and pregnancy. The illustrations are made by Ukrainian artist Valeriya Polyanychko. It will be published by Penguin Random House India.

Kalki spoke a few words about this particular memoir. She said, “We often take motherhood for granted and assume that it's something that just happens. Kalki's book uses quick wit and a sense of humour to take the reader down the long and winding road of parenting. Not only did Kalki's emotional journey deeply resonate with me, but illustrating this book has also been one of the most profound and enriching experiences I've ever had”.
