Nothing but the plane truth - Revelations by a Flight Attendant
Amaryllis – An imprint of Manjul Publishing House is delighted to announce the launch of its latest book, Nothing but the Plane Truth: Revelations by a Flight Attendant, by Pinky Eppaturi. The book was unveiled by Nidhi Chaphekar – motivational speaker, survivor and face of the Brussels terror attack, and Shantanu Ray Chibber – Bollywood writer and director, on 6
May 2018 at Title Waves book store, Bandra West, Mumbai. The event commenced with Lakshmi Krishnan, senior editor, introducing the book and the author. Pinky Eppaturi shared her interesting journey as a writer with the audience. It all began with her chance meeting with the publisher, Vikas Rakheja, on one of her flights. She had an offer to be published even before she started writing! Looking back, she still cannot believe that she is now a published author and her book has been officially launched. This was followed by an insightful and fun conversation between Nidhi Chaphekar and Pinky, where they talked about what all goes into the making of a flight attendant, including rigorous safety trainings, DGCA exams, and some humorous incidents from their training days. They also had the audience in splits with their narrations of incidents where star-struck flight attendants forgot what they were supposed to do, just because they got mesmerized by the presence of a celebrity. Shantanu Ray Chibber talked about the hard work that’s put in by flight attendants to make flying a pleasant experience for passengers – something that is hardly known and rarely talked about.
The event was attended by guests from all walks of life including senior cabin crew members from national and international airlines. The evening saw an enthusiastic participation by the audience who asked interesting questions, and then later lined up to get the book signed by the author.
