Read full description of the books:
Rachel knew even as a young child that she wasn’t like the rest of her Indian family. While her parents were plotting how she could make it into med school with her mediocre grades in chemistry and biology, she had other things on her mind, including such gems as:
· Why can’t she go to the temple on her period?
· Why don’t her Indian cousins like her?
· Why was it OK to be sexualized at a beauty pageant but not for herself?
· How can she straddle two cultures while retaining her sense of self?
· Why are women considered sluts and men considered studs?
· Why do people keep asking her if she was born in India?
· Should she wax down there?
· Why does she have crazy eyes?
After leaving home, Rachel got high in Amsterdam, met her pop singer idol in a bathroom, argued with a ghost, and got lost in the Pyrenees. But that didn’t stop her from questioning while men still tell her to smile. 'Are You There Krishna? It’s Me, Reshma. Or Rachel. Or Whatever.' weaves stories of Rachel’s life with observations on race, class, sex, feminism, and culture with humor and candor.

Read information about the authorOnce upon a time in an exotic land called New Jersey, I used to dream of one day playing tambourine in an all-girl rock band.
That never happened.
Instead I became a writer. Once I realized not a single American (the French totally ace it) could say my name without a 20 minute explanation and/or sounding like they are choking I gave up on “Reshma” and started going by “Rachel”.
I’ve written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Playboy, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan among others. I also run a gift store, Crimson and Clover Studio, which is sold online and nationwide in stores.
When I’m not writing or designing, I am busy drinking wine and singing off key, bike riding, pretending I’m friends with Mindy Kaling, eating absurd amounts of cheese, or listening to rock music at an appallingly loud volume. Sometimes all at once.
