An awesome afternoon. (post 22)

Today, I met  the gorgeous Madhuri Banerjee at a lovely cafe in Bangalore. We had a fabulous time together and had so much fun. I don't remember laughing this much, in the last few weeks! She and I talked non-stop, and we had so much to share. We talked about books (mostly), writing process, men, phones, fitness and a whole lot of other things.




 Madhuri is truly one of the warmest and nicest people I know. She is also very down to earth, unassuming and a total riot to be around :-)  I also follow her on twitter and some of the stuff she tweets go straight to the heart.



Later, we went and checked out some clothes, did some girlie things, and generally relaxed and unwound. We discussed so many things--the conversation was buzzing, flying and zooming in all directions, it was hard to keep track of the multiple threads we were conversing on.

I had read Madhuri's 'Mistakes like love and sex' and I told her that the sex scenes in the book were sizzling! She has done a splendid job on them. We talked about how it is really hard to write a good sex scene, without making it sound like porn, and without ever referring to genitalia. I was telling her about how the reader has to experience every single emotion that the protagonist feels, and therein lies the strength of the book--and she agreed.

I got her to sign her book for me and I shall always treasure what she wrote:



They say that sometimes you never know the real value of a moment till it becomes a memory.

Today, the moments we spent, have indeed gone into the 'treasured memories' section straight away.

Here's to both our books, and here is to more such wonderful times Madhuri!

  2. Yes, both the ladies in the photographs are gorgeous, but methinks the lady on the right wins the "gorgeous stakes" in a photo finish :)

    Perhaps the next post can be on what is it about men that the two gorgeous ladies talked !
