Atta Galatta in Bangalore is popular for hosting events catering to all ages –right from workshops for children to adults who wish to curl up with books available in one corner of this Book store where major space is allotted to choicest and latest books for book lovers to pick up. I am thankful to the organizers for hosting my Book reading event last Sunday, the 5th. Of july. Srikruthi , a charming post graduate student gave the most impressive welcome address which had not only the author but the audience too listening with rapt attention. Soon Uthpala , studying for her plus two kept the audience spell bound with reading of a few articles in her sing song voice from the author’s humorous books. This was followed by the author relating her journalistic journey spanning 45 years of her stay in Chennai. She spoke about her six books published by leading publishers and concluded with details of her latest book –JOURNALISM-THINK OUT OF THE BOX launched in December 2014 in Chennai. During the interaction she replied in detail with an example to a question regarding the title of her latest book. The event concluded with a vote of thanks by Srikruthi.
