When she got home from the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival two nights ago, my wife had story to tell.

Not what I'd call a reassuring story.

Speaking of KGAF: this evening (Tuesday 5th), I'll be on a panel talking about travel writing. My fellow panelists are Hartosh Bal and Sarayu Ahuja, and keeping the peace, or picking up the pieces, between us will be the inimitable Naresh Fernandes.

David Sassoon Library, 7-8pm.

Be there or be elsewhere.
