New Book Releases today. It's All In the Planets

'There's a new book by Preeti Shenoy,'
'Oh is it? What's it called?'
'It's All In The Planets.'
'It's not yet there in stores?'
'It is now. I have all her books. and this one I am waiting to read.'

This is an actual conversation I overheard this morning, between two women waiting in the bus-stop, while I was walking my dog.

I smiled to myself and walked on. Then  I met someone , a girl who was walking to work, who recognised me.
'Are you Preeti Shenoy?'
'Yes'
'M'am--I can't believe it is you.'
'Okay--it is me.'

Then I get home.
We are having idlis for breakfast, and I am making the chutney, while the spouse is checking some messages on his phone.

Me: 'Hey, the book releases today.'
A pause.
Complete silence.
And then 'Is the chutney done yet?'

C'est la vie.

  6. Mam you are amazing. You know how to make people visualise what you are saying (i mean what you are writing). I think you are books cant be made in to movies as they cant be visualised better than your writings.
