Fab year so far. Got to meet two of my favourite writers.
In Jan, Paro Devi came to college and stayed in the guest house right above the department so every morning, I sat at my desk with a spring in my bum- singing Parodevi is breathing above my desk – now she must be sleeping – now she must be eating.
I got to meet her personally and thank her for all the love she sends through her writing. Here’s a happy picture.
And then Times Lit Fest happened. It’s kakka and I would have never gone. I went only because I was to be on an interview with Sujatha Gidla 🙂
I don’t want to say much here because I’m writing about meeting her. Let me just say that I have never met an author who was just as happy to meet a fan as the fan was to meet her.
You can watch the interview here
In other news, Meta begins today. So I’ll see you after 400 years 🙂
