What’s been happening

This is a quick update on what’s going on. The Takshashila Roundtable in Hyderabad was a successful event. I had a few dozen pre-publication copies of “Rescuing India: The Transformation of a Nation by 2040”. That’s the first book to be published by “Not a Big Fat Book Press”, authored by yours truly.

It will be available in English, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Bengali and Hindi. I am looking for a Hindi translator. I appreciate any pointers.

Today is going to be a busy day. Lots of stuff to do before I leave tonight for California. The last open thread has lots of comments which I need to address but they will have to wait till I am back home.

In the meanwhile, I suggest “On Being an Armchair Intellectual ” as a quick read. Also, check out “Aping for Fun and Profit.

That’s it for now. If I get internet access at Zurich airport, I will write.

  1. Omkar,

    Marathi translation would be wonderful. Thank you. I will get in touch.


    Yes, we will have a downloadable PDF version also.


    Yes, of course. It will be great if we could get a quick Hindi version.

    Thank you all.


  2. Atanu,

    Why not a Kannada version too?🙂
    It may not sell too many copies, but as you know well enough, we must do all we can to promote scholarship in our own languages, if India has to truly emerge as a reasonably developed country. Dont you think?
