The nitty-gritties:

The book will be launched by the eminent Kannada poet and playwright, Mamta G.Sagar who will also introduce the poet. Sridala Swami will read from her work.

Venue: Center for Knowledge Societies
CKS House
4004 100' Rd,
HAL II Stage Indiranagar,
Bangalore, 560038
RSVP by emailing me at: muskaan@cks.in

More directions here.


Every reading is different, but this one is really different. For one thing, I've never read outside Hyderabad, and for another, I've never read entirely on my own. So yes, I'm a little nervous, but not as nervous as I'm going to be if no one turns up!

So please consider this a personal invite and do come if you can. It's a Thursday evening, I know, but it's at 7pm, so I'm hoping that gives everyone time to get there and all. If you are coming, do RSVP at the id given above.


This also means that this is my last post until Sunday. I'm dropping off the map unless I get severe withdrawal symptoms or something. See ya'll Sunday!

Went to Sridala's reading - glad I made time to do it. beautiful work, and she read almost exactly as I would want to hear her poems read.

Too late to say "all the best" but I'm sure it went off fine, judging by your Jaipur reading (and Rochelle's comment).

Many congratulations again!

Sur, Batul: Bombay coming up!

Shelley: This is me! Talk to me! (not to Her).

Jai: Thanks and see new post. I'm not sure about how it went, or about Jaipur - that was full of people warming themselves at fires or shivering, and Amit claiming to be a big fan or brains in jars!
