Her diary (or is it her autobiography, she isn’t sure) becomes a rabbit hole and a roadmap to writing her way through life as she sees it. Older and bolder, the unstoppable ‘Mayilwriter’ rants in rhyme, ponders in verse, and doodles in between.
For every moment of clarity, there are others filled with anger, confusion and self-doubt. But Mayil keeps her chin up and decides that she will never put her pen down.

Spunky and curious

The spunky and curious Mayil is a keen observer and has an opinion on everything that's happening around her, from ordinary and everyday situations at home to identity politics, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic violence, caste conflict and more. - R Krithika, The Hindu, April 2019, theHindu.com

All Grown Up & Pushing Boundaries

For many Indian kids in their teens now, Mayilwriter was a friend who understood what they thought and felt, and her diary felt much like their own, if they did write. Womensweb.in
