Gita Mehta: Her Writing Shaped Perspectives of India

From a New York Times obit by Neil Genzlinger headlined “Gita Mehta, Whose Writing Shaped Perspectives of India, Dies at 80”:

Gita Mehta, whose books examined the impact of Western culture on modern India and vice versa, bringing an Indian and a woman’s perspective to subject matter that was long the province of white men, died at her home in New Delhi.

Nicholas Latimer, a director of publicity at Knopf, where Ms. Mehta’s husband, Sonny Mehta, was president and editor in chief for many years, said the cause was complications of a stroke.
