My first book, My Friend Sancho, was published in May 2009, and went on to become the biggest selling debut novel released that year in India. It is a contemporary love story set in Mumbai, and had earlier been longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008. To learn more about the book, click here.

Version One by Bastiat: A petition by candlemakers for protection against the sun, which is “flooding the domestic market” with “production of light” at “an incredibly low price.”
Version Two by Sabnis: A petition by candlemakers against online petitions, which have affected the sale of candles by replacing candlelight vigils as the ultimate in “futile and convenient empty gestures.”
Quite. The first person to point me to an online petition that has actually achieved something in the real world gets a lifesize wax statue of Himesh Reshammiya with a wick on top. (Conditions apply.)
