The blurb of the book and the venue of the launch attracted me to attend the event. When I looked round to find a familiar face in the audience, I could find none which was something unusual for a lover of books. When the author started reading a few passages from his book mentioning the locale-The Rainbow colony in which the story? is set, as a Chennaiite I could find a disconnect both about the street and the people inhabiting the colony.
The interaction that followed with Ranvir Shah throwing up half a dozen questions which were followed by audience’s participation was more lively and interesting compared to the answers the author had given.
I realized emerging out of the venue in one piece was not easy because I had to forcefully squeeze myself between a fast approaching car to my right and the wall on my left. I wonder how a car was allowed to enter the drive where vehicles are strictly prohibited because of the hospital situated in the same premises .
