Purva is a storyteller in search of her favourite word. Her current favourite word is Meraki (Greek): To do something with soul, creativity or love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work.
Purva Grover is an author and journalist.
She made her debut as an author with The Trees Told Me So (2017); a book of short stories, it draws a poignant picture of love, life and loss with an honest voice. Her second title, It was the year 2020 (2021); a fragmentary novel set in real-time, it dares to speak of the pandemic, waiting to take over our lives, or whatever little is left of it. Her third title, She (2021); is currently making waves for its honest, relatable and fun approach on the topic of womanhood.
She is the founder-editor of The Indian Trumpet (2013), a digital magazine for Indian expats.
She absorbs, observes and narrates stories on this portal and beyond. 17 years of journalism (and counting), she has worked across genres, platforms and brands; and loves her life that revolves around headlines, deadlines and timelines.
In addition, she dabbles with poetry, public speaking, theatre, et al. and pushes boundaries when it comes to being a creative educator and entrepreneur.
Her words encompass books, podcasts, theatrical productions, talks, pieces of art, et al.
She is not an influencer, but a storyteller, who is addicted to the idea of penning down tales to discover her favourite word.
In June 2021, she was granted the UAE Golden Visa for ten years (the first culture visa in the world) under the category: Class of Creators from the People of Culture and Art as a writer.
