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.

Reading about the note on men willing to die for others in the army reminds me of a conversation X [a colleague] had with a general once. (True story; I was around him at the cocktail; we were Y [a newsmagazine] colleagues). So this general berated X and Y, saying journalists are unpatriotic, anti-national, selling the nation’s interests down the drain, not committed to unity, whereas he was patriotic, willing to lay his life for the country. After he finished this dramabazi, X said: General, I am patriotic; you are paid to be patriotic.
