About the Author

Madhu Trehan studied journalistic photography at Harrow Technical College & School  of Art in 1968. She received her master's degree in journalism from Columbia University, New York, in 1972. Trehan worked in the press Section in the United Nations in New York and then as editor in India Abroad, New York. In 1975 she returned to India to start India's leading magazine India Today with her father V.V.Purie. Trehan became known for creating the first news magazine in India.She returned to New York to start her family and her brother Aroon Purie took over India Today to make it the success it became.When she returned to India in 1986, Trehan produced and anchored a path-breaking,controversial television news magazine programme Newstrack for TV Today, when the Indian goverment had complete control of the air waves.Newstrack became famous for incredible journalistic scoops. Trehan became known as a pioneer in investigative journalism. In 2000, Trehan left TV Today to launch wahindia.com, a website and print magazine. Trehan's hopes for a sabbatical were dashed when, in 2002, Roli Books commissioned Trehan to write a book on Tehelka's operation West End. What she thought would be a three-month bang-off book turned out to be six years of heavy research and over forty interviews.
