Journalist  - turned author Pinki Virani opened our eyes to a deeply painful truth  - sexual abuse of children in middle  and upper-class  Indian homes.  Her book Bitter chocolate (Penguin 2000) revealed how rampant and perilous the crime is. It also dealt with  how we Indians  live  in denial,  believing  that such sin  are not the norm in our culture (Indeed, a nationwide  study published  in 2007 by the Ministry  of Women and Child Development  describes child  sexual abuse to be commonplace. In Bitter chocolate  award winning Virani Poignantly  talks of her own trauma of childhood incest,  and underlines  the importance  of children being  encouraged to speak up in order to overcome the shock and harm.

Earlier,  Virani's  first book, the award wining Aruna's  story, documented the tragedy of a nurse, who has been in a semi  - comatose state since  1973, after she was raped by a hospital employee while being strangled  with a chain. In these 36 years of losing  her speech, sight  and movement, Aruna Shanbaug  now 61, is  being  kept in a persistent  vegetative  state.

In the early 1980s, Pinki Virani started out as journalist  with  The Times  of India'group'. She has been editor of 'Mid Day' a Mumbai afternoon newspaper, and a special correspondent with  'Sunday'.  She is  married to Shankar  Aiyar, also, and veteran journalist  and editor  Virani's  fourth  and most recent book, 'Deaf  Heaven'  (Harper Collins),  is  also her first work  of fiction. It's  been described by Khushwant  Singh  as "igenuously  structured".
