As you all know, I’m the shy type. I may not hesitate to reveal the inner workings of my life and mind to all and sundry here on this blog, but that’s just my online persona. In real life, I’m comfortable only with close friends, and if I must meet strangers, I’d prefer to take them on one at a time. Any situation which threatens to swamp me with more new names and faces than I can remember (one or two, at most), is to be avoided.
Add to that a generous measure of stage fright and you’ll understand why I wasn’t exactly upset that my book did not get any kind of launch event.
However Sandhya, my friend, erstwhile boss, and one of the facilitators of the escapade that became my first book, has enthusiastically declared that my book shall have a book reading session, organised by the Varnika Book Club. It is obviously intended for members of the privileged club, of course, but she did say I could invite a couple of people. Consider yourselves invited, people. It’s at Boca Grande in Koramangala (conveniently close to Sapna Book House, where those who don’t have it yet can purchase a copy of my book) on Saturday, 26th Feb, 3-4.30 p.m. Block your calendars.
Some folks have complained that my book doesn’t have pictures – and what’s a travel book without pictures? I’ll do what little I can to make up for this by bringing along a selection of photographs as well.
If you’d like to attend, leave a comment on my blog or respond on FaceBook.
And if I don’t recognise you when I meet you, for pete’s sake don’t be offended. I’m not being rude, I’m like that only.
