Hello world, I was in the papers today! Clicky here to read it all.

For those of you in Delhi, this appeared in the Indian Express on Monday, 10 August 2009. It’s in Newsline on page 6. For those without access to Express, including me, sadly, here’s a little glimpse:

    That’s exciting! :mrgreen:

    Me’s so going to sign any books me might sell with your name! You’s all good at being celebrity and I can be all secretly sexy like Clark Kent!

  3. Swetank says:

    Cool! You are now a Page 6 celeb! Lovely. This was sort of a brief revision of your bio. I think the only part I did not really remember was you playing cricket for DU but it came back to me pretty fast.
    Was this a general interview or in anticipation of the new book? I somehow keep thinking that your book will be released this ’Friday’. Watching too many movies lately. 😐

  4. Swetank says:

    Why ’Teen Mutation’, though?

  5. Niklas says:

    @Swetank: I suspect the writer was a Turtles fan.

  6. Olivia says:

    i also felt some Turtles vibe, but the Turtles were cool =) Yay for you Jan!

    😉 Well done indeed. Read the article. You sound very author-y in your answers!

    Glad you guys liked the story. I thought it was a very good write-up. And ha ha, the page 6 angle never struck me!

    @Swetank: They misunderstood me a little. I played cricket for my college, not university!

    @Olivia: *gasp* This is a first! >:-)

    Participating in a blog for the first time. I have to say something with weight, with meaning. Something witty yet serious, eloquent but not overbearing, sweeping and succint.
    A comment that shows both my affection for the blogger and my respect for her craft and her success in it…

    Cowabunga dude.

    Well said. I am… er… rendered speechless.

    Hey, very nice! 🙂 Was it only in the Delhi edition, though? 10 August – I shall ask my aunts to look it up and send me the cutting.

    And now I’m friends with a celeb! 😀
