Think Outside the Pun - Seamless Integration of Humour in Writing
Saturday, 15thMarch, 2014
5:00 pm - 6:00pm
Shinie Antony in conversation with Rachna Singh, author of Dating, Diapers and Denial, Nuotial Knots, That Autumn in Awadh.
About Rachna's third book was launched in Jan 2014. It's called 'That Autumn in Awadh'. It's a romantic comedy. As in a typical romantic comedy the two lovers are young, likeable, and quite, hopelessly, meant for each other. They are kept apart by several complicating circumstance which come in vicious packets of surprising twists. Of course, there is the quintessential fairy-tale-style happy ending. There is a main plot and the sub plots that run parallel to it. In the sub plots, there are generous servings of humour, ranging from keen, hilarious observations around community life to workplace humour.
The book moves at the pace of a thriller, and the twists and turns keep the reader at his or her seat's edge. The plot, while on a theme that is common, is taut and gripping. The imagery around the cities across which the story unfolds: Lucknow, Allahabad, Mussoorie, and Bangalore is vivid, relatable and beautiful. Finally, the large scoops of humour keep you chuckling!
There is no villain in the book: it's all about coping with honour-shame.
In cultural anthropology, a shame culture, also called honour-shame culture or shame society, is the concept that, in a given society, the primary device for gaining control over children and maintaining social order is the inculcation of shame and the complementary threat of ostracism.
TAIA brings forth to the reader the struggles resultant of ‘shame' experienced by families when their children decide to marry across the lines that uphold self-esteem: class, caste, religion.
The book is doing extremely well, as early reports come in.
On writing memorable women characters : with authors Gita Aravamudan and Radhika Nathan
Saturday, 8thMarch, 2014
This women's day, EasyLib welcomed its patrons for an interesting session. Authors Gita Aravamudan and Radhika Nathan shared their thoughts and experiences on what it takes to write strong women characters.
About Radhika Nathan
Radhika Nathan is the debutant author of the historical romance 'The Mute Anklet'. She has been writing essays, stories and blogs for a long time, but has shared them primarily with family and friends. Her love for books, familiarity with the places that she writes about and her passion for researching have made the long journey of writing the novel interesting and immensely pleasurable.
The Mute Anklet
It's the 1790s in India. The third Anglo-Mysore War between the kingdom of Mysore and the East India Company is hurtling towards a climax. The British, having captured the Malabar Coast are lurching nervously towards Bangalore. Tipu Sultan is waging a ferocious battle.
Grew up in a small gold mining town in Karnataka, went to college in Bangalore taught high school for a year and then somehow squeezed her way into journalism in the late 1960s when media organizations were totally anti-women.
Worked as a trainee for Hindustan Times Delhi and then at the age of 21 became a full-fledged reporter for Indian Express Bangalore…the first woman reporter in the city. Free-lanced for a long, long time thereafter from Trivandrum where she landed after getting married. Wrote for every conceivable English language publication on every conceivable subject until she finally zeroed in on gender issues. Has had long running columns in major newspapers like The Hindu, Express & Times of India on subjects ranging from urban living and art to ofcourse gender.
Has previously published 3books of non-fiction: Voices in My Blood (Sterling 1990) (translated into Tamil), Disappearing Daughters (Penguin 2007)(translated into Marathi & Japanese), Unbound(Penguin 2010) and 1 book of fiction: The Healing (Harper Collins 2008)
Her next book of non-fiction on surrogacy also to be published by Harper Collins is scheduled to come out later this year.
Colour of Gold
Colour of Gold is a mystery novel set in Kolar Gold Fields one of India's oldest gold mining towns. The unexpected death of an Anglo Indian employee of the mines, a mysterious letter from England and an Australian journalist investigating the closure of what were once the richest mines in the country.
Three seemingly unconnected strands which help uncover a century old secret which might have remained buried forever.
In the process of unraveling the mystery flits up and down across a span of 100 years, and brings alive the life and times of a special town with a special way of life which disappeared forever when the Mines closed.

Book Talk : Days of Gold & Sepia by Yasmeen Premji
This is the saga of Lalljee Lakha as he rises from his humble beginnings as a penniless orphan in his desert homeland of Kutch to amass a large fortune as Bombays Cotton King. Set against the eventful period between Indias War for Independence in 1857 and the fledgling freedom struggle of the early twentieth century, this sweeping tale is peopled by a vibrant array of characters merchant princes and maharajas, courtesans and soothsayers, pirates, freedom fighters and soldiers of the British Raj. Days of Gold and Sepia paints the portrait of a man of courage and character, and is the story of the discovery of life, the pain of a passionate and doomed love and family feuds, and of great personal integrity and human frailty.
Yasmeen Premji - Born and raised in erstwhile Bombay, Yasmeen Premji graduated from St. Xavier's College before completing her master's degree from Smith College, USA. She worked as assistant editor for the Indian design magazine, Inside Outside, for many years before moving with her husband Azim to Bangalore, India's IT capital, which she now calls home. This is her first novel.
Locks, Mahabharata and Mathematics: An Exploration of Unexpected Parallels
It was an evening like none else! Locks, Mahabharata, and Mathematics - all the three facets came alive with the words of Dr. V. Raghunathan. But, the show-stopper was most certainly the author's collection of locks! And, he was so generous that he let the audience play with the locks!

Colors of Love : Love Stories From Mahabharatha
Storytelling for adults by Geeta Ramanujam
Storytelling for adults! Doesn't happen everyday and more so doesn't happen everyday by Geeta Ramanujam. It was a mesmerizing evening when Geeta transported the audience to the world of stores. Geeta brought to life two little known stories from Mahabharatha, that of Chandreyi and Sushobhana - two beautiful women, one an eternal romantic and the other a seductress! If all of the photos of Geeta are blurred, thats only because she was not still for a moment! But the audience sat without moving a muscle!

Launch of 'Foreign' by Sonora Jha
Anita Nair's reading from Cut Like Wound
It was, as expected, a wonderful session with writer Anita Nair. She read excerpts from her new crime fiction (or literary noir as it is called) novel Cut like wound and graciously and patiently interacted at length with the audience. It was educational to hear her spoke about her method of research and her craft of writing. One aspect was clear after listen to Anita - that it takes a great lot of effort, talent, intuition, and reading to become an accomplished writer of her stature! Wish more aspiring writers had attended the session to listen to her words of wisdom, spoken so accessibly.

Tea for two and a peace of cake : by Preeti Shenoy (with Random House)
Those who attended Preeti Shenoy's reading at EasyLib, even the ones who braved the rain and traffic, were glad they did! Writer Shinie Antony set the mood for the evening with her initial set of questions to Preeti. Followed by Preeti's reading from her new book 'Tea for two and a piece of cake.' Well, now we have to read the book because we want to know what happens at the end!
The Q&A, IMHO, was an amazing part of the evening, thanks to a superbly clued in audience. Questions ranged from how she makes time for writing (I don't watch any TV!) to what her message to the society is (My books are about people and their personal experiences. They don't really delve on larger societal issues). Preeti being an artist was quizzed whether her art inspires her writing ("Not really. Writing and painting are two separate compartments in my life. One doesn't influence the other").Preeti is an eloquent yet a simple and straightforward writer, which reflected in the way she spoke as well. She answered questions without intellectualizing her opinions, which explains her HUGE fan base!
Pictures from the event are here17-09-2012
Thank you Preeti, Shinie and thank you attendees! And a special thanks to Cupcake Noggins for a lovely fare!

Anjum Hasan and Brinda Narayan at EasyLib
An intelligent and entertaining evening with Anjum and Brinda at EasyLib.
When people started terming Anjum's first novel "Lunatic in my head" a book about Shillong, she decided to call "Neti Neti" a book about Bangalore! But "no work of fiction is precisely about one thing; it is about a lot small things" opined Anjum. She had a lot of very interesting thoughts on writing fiction and her crisp and clear talk held the audience in rapt attention.
"Employees in call centers are forced to sound positive and happy despite their personal woes, and that too in an adopted accept. This causes a severe imbalance in people's psyche " said Brinda Narayan. She was intrigued by employees losing not just their names in these jobs but their emotional bearings as well. Brinda's book "Bangalore calling" is a fictional summation of the stories she had researched as well heard during the course of her career as a quality consultant for call centers.
The evening ended with the audience quizzing the authors. Questions ranged from why we are bothered by the death of regional languages to how and why people adopt accents.
