Congratulations. I suppose this is just the first of many accolades to come. You're going to turn out to be one of those disgustingly successful writers, aren't you?

Thanks everyone. The piece isn't on my blog and I don't think I'm allowed to post it either. You'll just have to buy the book now won't you :P
And Falstaff, Shyam; poor translation fo tamizh saying (or phrase) : sugar in your mouth (i think)

Falstaff said...

shoefie: Ah, so much healthier than the hindi version which puts sugar and ghee in your mouth. (tumhare mooh mein ghee shakkar)

I've always wondered what sort of person eats ghee and sugar for fun.
