So, you will forgive me…

…for a few days while I don’t post too regularly and instead bore you all to tears with unabashed plugging of my book? You will, won’t you? Cross your heart, swear to die, etc?

In consonance with that spirit of solidarity, here are pics from my event yesterday at Happy Planet Powai, where Soma Ghosh, writer and journalist, and I read excerpts from my book and chatted about parenting.

    Hi Kiran

    I have been reading your blog for the last few months.

    Though, I am not a fan of checklit – Indian chicklit in particular, I plan to get your book. I am sure that it would be good, if it is anything like your blog.

    All the very best!

    Thanks and Regards


    Thank you so much Roopa.
