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.

The WTF comment of the day comes from S Sreesanth, who, while denying a link-up with an actress named Daisy Bopanna, says:
I don’t think that I would stoop so low that I have to date an unknown, struggling actor.
That shows his class, doesn’t it? He only dates people based on their social status. I can imagine Sreesanth, thinking he’s a stud and all that, hitting on a hot chica at a party.
Sree: Hey baby! I am India fast bowler, I want to daaance with you, rowmaaance with you, want to come on a date?
Sree: Good. But first, tell me what you do?
Chica: I am an actor.
Sree: What kind of actor, have you done any big roles? Have you starred in a Yash-Raj film? Do you have an agent in Hollywood?
Chica: Er, no, I’ve just started out, and…
Sree: Oh, I see. You’re an unknown, struggling actor?
Chica: That’s right.
Sree: Okay then, date is cancelled. Bye bye. I don’t stoop so low.
Harbhajan Singh, if you’re reading this, please go to wherever Sreesanth is hanging out these days and slap him again. Do it for your country. India needs you.
