The Ivory Throne: Chronicles of the House of Travancore (HarperCollins) is my first book of non-fiction, released in December 2015.

The Ivory Throne was the winner of the Tata Lit Live Prize for best first book (non-fiction 2016) and was short-listed for the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize and the Crossword Prize, as well as the BLF-Atta Galatta Prize. In June 2017 it won the Sahitya Akademi’s Yuva Puraskar (English).
