Shweta Taneja heard her first mythological tale the traditional way--orally. Since then, magical, mythical stories have always captivated her as a reader and listener. However, as a writer, she did not always create fiction. During her hectic working career as a journalist, her creative instincts were limited to her personal diary. For seven years she ran after people looking for stories--news stories. One day, however, she decided to create her own stories instead, and officially began writing graphic novels.
