Revati Laul was born saying `No' and `Why' as much as she could. Over time this became such an obsession that she even got paid for it. However it wasn't such a cool story. Truth told, she wanted to make documentaries and there didn't seem to be a place to start, so she became a television journalist. She told herself she would quit soon to make documentaries but that took a decade. By then she was too much of a hard-boiled journalist to try anything else. She switched to print and switched between making a few PR films for NGOs and corporates which allowed her to use the lofty tag of journalist and film-maker. Basically what she had tried and tested most is telling long stories on any medium she could find. She eventually wrote a book that was published in December 2018 by Westland, called, The Anatomy of Hate. It tells for the first time ever that someone told the story of the perpetrators of the genocidal mobs that killed Muslims in Gujarat in the year 2002. Editors subsequently called her a `Sangh watcher' or someone who watches the movement of the Hindu right wing in India, loosely called `The Sangh.' She has just completed a tour across six states - from the North East to the North to the South, to write about the Sangh and how they operate in an election.These series of stories were published in The Hindustan Times and the website IndiaSpend. She tweets @revatilaul. And it's true, what her twitter handle says about her - she chronicles politics by day, but also food, film, fiction and fornication.
