About Sharmin

Sharmin Ali

Author, Speaker and Entrepreneur from India

She has two companies to her credit. Here is a quick Q&A with Sharmin to help you get to know her better:


What do you do exactly?


I am an entrepreneur and I have two startups:
thepenpower.com India's first online marketplace for news creators and news readers Check it here: thepenpower
Art-Right-Is productions: A theatre production house


What did you study?


I'm a BE in Electronics and Communication. (Yeah, I know that look! Bla..)

Where are you originally from?

My roots lay from Kolkata, but I've stayed all over the country, thanks to my dad's transferrable job. I have even travelled to 21 states in the country. (Guess I could run the next PM elections....!)

Did you ever think you could be an author?

Actually I did not. But when you quit your job at 23, have nothing practically in your pocket and randomly travel with a theatre group performing in 21 states, guess you have a lot of time to introspect and pen down your thoughts. But I had to slog very hard to get my book published.

What has been your life's greatest achievement so far?

From having a stammer to doing theatre, from engineering to entrepreneurship, from never having read a book (except requisite textbooks) till I was 18 to being a published author, my life has been so contrasting and full of surprises so far. I think this 'Contrast' has been my greatest achievement.(P.S.:"Bade-bade bade sharho main aise choti-choti baatein hoti rehti hain, I guess...")

Can I call you to give a talk at my school/college/office?

Of course you can as I do a lot of these. Just drop me a message at info@sharminali.com and I would be happy to impact your life in whatever little way I can.

What advice would you give to your young followers?

I would just say that follow your gut. 100 percent of your success is a function of your attitude and not your aptitude. So just go for it!
