Chai, Chai

My book, Chai, Chai: Travels In Places Where You Stop But Never Get Off, should be in the bookshops in a day or two.

A formal launch, by the Madras Book Club, is scheduled for October 15, 6.30 pm, at Taj Connemara. Veteran theatre artiste P.C. Ramakrishna will be reading from the book.

So, welcome one and all. The presence of those who have been reading me for a while would hopefully make up for the absence of my mother, who chose to depart from this world just a few weeks before this event. It would also be nice to meet people who I have known so far as 'anonymous' commentators.

Thanks, everybody.

To answer the question some of you have asked, the book is already available through online stores within India.

Those abroad can order it on Amazon.

All the best Mr. Ghosh! I know how emotional a moment it will be for you! Perhaps... another book on this one too!

You're so bitter about mom going. Don't be, it will make her unhappy. I'm sure she did not design it this way.
