It was a wonderful Sunday spent in Bangalore, visiting Bangalore book stores and meeting wonderful people at the launch in the evening at Atta Galatta.
Thank yous due to Tara Kodkani for introducing me to Mini Tiffins, chow chow bhath, and making sure I got into a saree for this one, anticipating every possible excuse I might make from safety pin to blouse and keeping it all ready. And for making it a full house. Thanks to all Tara’s friends who dropped by, very kind and I am honoured you all took time out to come on a Sunday evening from the other end of the city. Thank you to Raghuvendra Rao of Penguin who patiently took me around all the bookstores, and Neha Punj at Penguin who did all the coordination. To Atta Galatta for kindly hosting the venue, we need some like you in Mumbai. To TUI India for graciously sponsoring my travel and stay. To all those who took time out to come–infinite gratitude. To Nandita, Shinie, Milan, Shyaam, Aparna, Paro, Rashmi, Shweta, Brihat, Dhanya and everyone who came, hugs. You made my day special. To Mons and Sue, the coven must convene again in thunder, lightning and in rain. And finally, to the lovely Preeti Shenoy, thank you for the lovely conversation and for taking time out to make my launch memorable.
Here are some pictures of the day.
