BARFANI BABA, To Amarnath, Happily is out.
Ok. That is an understatement. Correction. Understatement of the year. Ok, Ok, Understatement of my adult life. Like Parineeti Chopra who screamed and said, " Too much Punjabi blood in my veins", i was tempted to scream , but better sense prevailed :)
I just picked up fresh copies of BARFANI BABA from my publisher. Since this is my first baby, understandably there were a hew hiccups. But i am happy. And yes content. My job is done. Now it is for the readers to give their feedback.
Interestingly as i was waiting at the road opposite Gate 2 of Pragati Maidan, i bumped into a friend A friend who lives all the way in Dubai but is on vacation here. I met Meenu Mehrota, just as she was going to the Book Fair. And i handed over the loose copy i had with me to her happily. Oh yes, i signed it too!
Meenu this little memory will always be special for me , as you are the FIRST person i shared the book with. Even before my family. I am sure you will be my lucky charm.
I am just back from my neighborly get together of my friends. Friends whom i have know for two decades. And it was a happy occasion gifting them signed copies.
The first pic i wanted to put up on FB was one of my parents This is a first time , so i indeed seek their blessings. And i feel fortunate that they are with me to share my happiness.
Now for the ground work.
There will be a formal launch, in the near future. I shall inform you all. Watch out in the next few days.
You can buy this book from the BOOK FAIR if you happen to visit it any time till 10th Feb.
The Vitasta stall is in Hall No 5. Stall No 249 - 250.
The Book can be ordered Online By 9th February from FLIPKART and INFIBEAM for a start. Ill put up the link on FB soon.
So, thats about it all. Go read it. Would love your feedback. And if the Travelogue inspires you to make the arduous journey to Amarnath this Summer, ill be mighty happy.
Just a passing shot. Be gentle. Be kind. It is my first attempt and entry into the Writers league. :))
