The boutique start-up by IITians has grown into one of India's most reputed creative studios – a unique crossover content creator through books and films. If you’ve got a remarkable story, we can take it places. With over 1.5 million books sold, Pirates has published romance, thrillers, autobiographies, mythology, self-help and children's books. Diversifying into international imprints like Paradox, Quignog and Larks & Fables, we plan to make publishing a democratic movement. Quignog is where we move beyond publishing to nurturing authors.


Why Pirates? Because we firmly believe in stealing – we pick from our parents, style ourselves on our idols, snatch moments from real life. For every Mandela, there is a Gandhi. Claiming originality is audacity, conceit. We are all thieves, and the better among us Pirates.
