Raymond Crossword Book Award 2014

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.

— at NCPA Nariman Point.

Susu before science! Methinks happy days are here for our book-loving kids! 🙂

The hurriedly clicked and bbmed pic to my family before I rushed out to attend the event. I wish I hadn’t been this stupid to not have any other pic of the entire evening!
