Sethji comes to town!

Blogdosts, he's here!

Are you ready for Sethji???? What a fabulous book launch. I'd say, one of the best!  That's my hottie editor, Chiki Sarkar, and our man in Mumbai, the dependable trouper Harish, with newbie Fiero at the back. We are wearing  '' Í am NOT Sethji' caps .... you go figure the reference!
Pity Karnad rained on the parade, and dampened spirits. I was not aware of what Karnad had said during his session. All I heard hours later was that Karnad had converted his slot into a Naipaul bashing slugfest.Aah well.... every Lit Fest has its moments. The Karnad salvo marked this one.

More selfishly speaking.... I thoroughly enjoyed my session. Take a bow Anil Dharker! As for Jayant Kripalani.... what do I say? At short notice, Jayant read out chapter 33 from Sethji. It was a flawless , dramatised reading that gave the audience a rich flavour of the book.

I was still recovering from the amazing surprise party organised by my family the night before... more on that tomorrow....

so proud to see your book cover. and i love the way your book launch becomes such a dhamakedar event with super sexy promotions. the topi, the photocover, the attire is all laajawaab....



"karnad ka inteqam" it seems he was waiting for a decade to get his volcano to erupt. god! he needs to be packed off to galaxy for training. sallu bhai can inspire him to act on impulse... and not wait for ages to get dil ki baat on zubaan.
