Aditi Mathur Kumar is an author, mother, advertising professional and a proud Indian Army wife. Aditi’s first book, Soldier & Spice, is a heart-warming and poignant story about the grand and mysterious world of Army wives, and since it was released in 2013, the book gave way to a whole new genre of stories about defence families. As a civilian married to an Army officer, she believes that the world needs to hear the stories of families of those serving in the forces.
Aditi is also the only Indian Army wife to deliver a TEDx talk about the lives of Army families.
Aditi’s other books include Love, Whatever That Means, which is a hilarious and moving story of an Army girlfriend, and This Heartbreak, a collection of poems.
Aditi’s latest book, Operation Payback, is the story of a Veer Nari (war widow) and her unmatched grit and courage in the face of misfortune and adversity. This is a story that takes inspiration from the brave Veer Naris who know the price of freedom, and from the brave Lady Officers in the Indian Forces who are heroes to every young girl and boy growing up in today’s India.
