Chitra is part of several anthologies that curate, present and share cultural experiences. Each one of these anthologies celebrates writers of all genres, at all stages of their creative lives and consciously grow a space for divergent ideas to flourish. Many writers thus feel free to risk a fall, trusting this space to hold them. Chitra believes that such shared grounds allow for agreement, collision and revelations, something that all writers hunger for.
Recognition to Chitra has come in the form of winning story contests, an award for her contribution to development journalism, being a juror of a flash fiction contest and being a guest editor for a prestigious online literary journal.
