1. My post - Is common courtesy gender dependent? will be published in the next edition (Volume 2, issue 2) of Verse and Verbs Magazine. This will be out in the market by first week of November.
2. My book review (in an edited form) of Ashwin Sanghi's Chanakya Chant will be published in the next edition of the novel. You can read the detailed review here and do catch the novel soon, if you haven't. The rights of the novel has been acquired by UTV and the movie will be directed by Ashutosh Gwaorikar.
3. My Short story for Chicken Soup for the Indian Couples' Soul is finally seeing the light. All the editions of the CS were delayed by few months because of licensing issues with CS-USA. The book will now hit the bookstores by February end. More on this in a previous post here.
Wishing everyone happy and prosperous Diwali. This is my fifth consecutive go-green Diwali. (Helped generously that i was not in India on three of those occasions!) I intend to keep it same till i have kids who want to burn fire-crackers. That reminds me i have to get married!
