About the Author:


From writing thoughts to poetry, Aditi Jindal has been on a writing spree ever since she wrote her first poem in school. The big switch from poetry to prose took place in 2010 with her first fiction novel, which discussed the upbringing of a child in an Indian joint family system. Her second fiction title created a stir amongst a lot of college-goers. She was also invited as one of the leading panelists, and was the youngest speaker on ‘Decoding Relationships’, at the 2013 Gliterarti: Gurgaon Art and Literary Festival. Being an avid traveller, she often blogs and writes travel articles for a well-known travel website and a newspaper. Green Gadgets is Aditi’s second non-fiction work based on her interactions with the teens today.
