My first book, My Friend Sancho, was published in May 2009, and went on to become the biggest selling debut novel released that year in India. It is a contemporary love story set in Mumbai, and had earlier been longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008. To learn more about the book, click here.

When you’re having a low day, there’s nothing better to do than read a bit of Mahinder Watsa. Reader Nandu writes in to point me to this gem, which I’d somehow missed:
Q. A lot of women approach me for a physical relationship since I have a good physique. However, I am scared. My instructor says that sex reduces physique due to loss of semen since semen is a kind of blood. Is that true or just an old wives’ tale?
Watsa: The instructor badly needs sex education. It is an old wives’ tail.
Rarely is a pun so masterfully used.
PS.: Oh, and just to clarify, when I said ‘low day’, I was not punning. Thank you.
