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.

Quote of the day:
I have heard stories before about underwear being stolen, but I never thought it would happen to me.
This is from a university student whose panties were among those stolen by a university professor. It’s fairly harmless as fetishes go, especially since the panties were flicked “from a university hostel’s clothes-line,” and none of the victims were actually wearing them at the time—unless they were hung on the clothesline as well, which is unlikely given the logistics involved. I’m not condoning the man’s act—theft is theft, unless the government does it—but I sympathize with the last line of the report:
The lawyer also said that his client was an honourable and kind person who had no intention of causing annoyance to the underwear owners.
