Canadian author sees flash of a story in India

Her very first trip to India recently has left a strong imprint on award-winning Canadian author and filmmaker Shandi Mitchell who has discovered the germ of a story in the bustling capital Delhi.

Mitchell, whose films have been screened at various international film festivals, forayed into writing with her debut novel Under this Unbroken Sky, which picked up First Best Book award in 2010 Commonwealth Writer's Prize in the Caribbean and Canada region.

"I might have found a story while I was there (in India). I saw the flash of a story. We'll see. Of course, I would have to return for much more research," Mitchell told PTI in an interview.
