Journalist and Author

Geeta has worked as a journalist for the past 27 years, most recently as a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal in India. Her passion has been investigative reporting and narrative non-fiction. She was part of the team at the Wall Street Journal that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for reporting on corporate corruption. I wrote a non-fiction book, The Cure, about a dad’s fight to save his kids by starting a biotech company to make a medicine for their untreatable illness, which was made into the Harrison Ford movie Extraordinary Measures. More recently, she investigated the land buying of the Gandhi family son-in-law Robert Vadra; how tuberculosis became totally drug resistant in India; how a stock market analyst got arrested by a big real estate firm for writing a negative research report. She’s traveled to Bangladesh, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Kashmir and around the region to report on terrorism, health and education. She started in journalism at small newspapers on Cape Cod and Vermont, and worked her way up to the Boston Globe, where she covered politics. She met her husband, Gregory Kroitzsh, in college, and he came with her to Mumbai where he started the city’s first microbrewery. She has two daughters who are 18 and 20 and studying in the U.S.
