We have reason to celebrate! 🙂
Have returned home with priceless memories of a wonderful experience at The Raymond Crossword Book Award 2014. The Susu Pals did not win, but I savoured every moment, enjoyed Crossword’s gracious hospitality, strengthened old bonds, forged new friendships, and had an extraordinarily good time. I would have loved to have someone, anyone, walk up to me and say, ‘I LOVE your book!’ but what I did hear instead were a few ‘I LOVE your saree!’s.’ Well, the small little things that bring us joy when the almost-attainable has given you a miss! 🙂 Alicia, we missed you. Samina, Payal, Shilpa, applause and respect. And a beautifully worded citation it was for Shals Mahajan, the winner in the children’s category.

It was immense fun recording the voice over for the apps for The Unboy Boy and The Susu Pals (which eventually didn’t get released). The recording was done at Atonal Indian’s design and music studio. Seen in these images, author and publisher Richa Jha and designer, musician Abhishek Jha.
