Janhavi Samant is a content and influencer marketing strategist and a former journalist with over two decades of experience as a senior features and entertainment editor with eminent newspapers such as Midday, Times of India, Hindustan Times and Lokmat. She is the author of the 2020 bestseller Faaltugiri and Other Flashbacks, a light-hearted book about childhood in the early 80s in Mumbai.
She recently launched a children’s book When Elephants Had Wings, a collection of 25 funny stories for kids. As a child, Janhavi would hear many tales - some funny, some heroic, some tragic and some downright disgusting - from her grandma and parents. As a mom, she loves re-telling and recycling and even making up a few stories for her own kids at bedtime. She believes stories build bonds between parents and kids. That is why she is touring bookstores and festivals to read out the funny stories from her book to kids across the country. The wise say that those who tell stories rule the world. So Janhavi is getting ready to rule this world!
