A book, a book!



Finally, it's out there.

Update: It is definitely available in Landmark bookstore, Gurgaon (and in Chennai and Mumbai, I hear). I spotted it, unfortunately, under 'Quotations', right next to 'Psychology', instead of in the poetry section. It made me fret, but I felt foolish about fretting personally, so got a cousin to get the shop assistants to correct the mistake. But in case anybody goes there and can't find the book under 'poetry', you know where to look.

Wow! man, is this cool! CONGRATS!

So far, I have been seeing only praise from friends. Some balanced comments are surely needed.

Perhaps someone could review the book.

Obviously there are some enthusiastic readers/friends, any taker?

iz said...

CONGRATULATIONS! That's FANTASTIC. Hope it does incredibly well.

Have found a review at http://www.ryze.com/posttopic.php?topicid=816534&confid=1199. I get a perception of the writing ...

There is an aspect when the love (at one level) exceeds and enhances you and simultaneously (at another level) 'defines' you more clearly (it makes you more 'you'). It is a kind of dance between the micro- and the macrocosm, e.g., classic 'nataraj' posture that is static yet points to the dynamic.

Such are the words for describing love (boy, Wittgenstein would have had a field day over this) ...

> ... boy, Wittgenstein would have had a field day over this

I guess that is unknown turf.
