This book launch was a witty af­fair

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - City - Etti Bali

Quirk, cre­ativ­ity and some in­her­ently-Delhi wit ran amok at this book launch in the Cap­i­tal on Fri­day evening. The event be­gan with can­did con­ver­sa­tions with au­thor Anuja Chauhan, fol­lowed by her read­ing an ex­cerpt from her lat­est book. She also ex­pressed her love for the city. “I love the Delhi I grew up in... the ’80s were a great place,” she says.

About Bol­ly­wood’s fas­ci­na­tion with lit­er­a­ture, Chauhan added in her trade­mark toungue-in-cheek style that a movie adapted into a book ex­pands its reach to a wider au­di­ence, and also gives it “street cred”. Many from the lit­er­ary, me­dia and aca­demic cir­cles were present at the do, in­clud­ing singer Shibani Kashyap, au­thors Meenakshi Reddy Mad­ha­van and Vinod Bhard­waj.
