Chitta Ranjan is an engineer by profession, who lives in Perth, Western Australia with his wife and two children. His childhood spent in the verdant north-eastern corner of India sparked his fascination for nature and wildlife. On completing his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, he moved to New Delhi for work. He has since completed his master’s degree in engineering and has lived in Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi and Paris before migrating to Australia in 2000.
He is widely travelled and his hobbies include bird watching and reading. His passion for bird watching combined with love of nature has culminated in extensive exploration of the forests of India, particularly in the remote north-eastern corner. This love for the jungles coupled with his interest in the history of the princely states under British India have culminated in his first novel; The Elephant Girl.
