Being passionate about sex education, she started her company UnTaboo dedicated to this cause. When she isn’t conducting a workshop or writing, she could probably be found doing stand-up comedy or counselling someone! One can see her work on and catch her blogs at

Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Books International: How I Got My Belly Button by Anju Kish is a much-needed ready reckoner on all those questions child would like to ask about sex, their own body and its relation with the world, without either parents or children feeling awkward or squeamish about a healthy exchange on the subject. In fact, it also invites parents and instructors to teach children to ensure their physical well-being, thus ensuring their psychological well-being too. A very timely book indeed, it would make for a great addition to any curriculum.
