In Books, Daughters

My 8 year old daughter, Krithya, has written her first book and we are having a small launch function at our apartment’s community hall. We would like to cordially invite you to the book launch function.

Please treat this as our personal invitation and it would be our delight to have your presence and blessings. I feel its a defining moment in the young girl’s life and your presence would be great encouragement.

Day and Date: Sunday, 14th March

Time: 10:30 AM

Here’s the address:
Community Hall, Raj Paris Apartments, 82, Kamaraj Street, Virugambakkam, Chennai – 600092

Landmark : Near Avichi School.

Directions: The venue is about 1.5 kms from Vadapalani Bus Stand. On Arcot Road, after Avichi School and a big Raymond’s Showroom, take the first right. This is Kamaraj Street. After 100 meters, the road splits into right and left. (a ‘T’ junction). The Raj Paris apartment is exactly at this ‘T’ junction. It’s opposite to an Amman Temple. Once inside the apartment, ask for the Community Hall. Its at the back of the apartment.  If you need help, please call me at 98415 97744.

My friend and Singer Chinmayi, who Krithya has a lot of admiration for, has agreed to launch the book.

I Seek Your Help: I understand that most of you are not in Chennai and here’s my request to you.  It would be a great source of encouragement if you can call and speak to my little girl and give her your wishes.  She doesn’t expect anyone to call and it would be a good surprise for her.

Here are the numbers you can call.

My Home Landline Number: +91.44.42733619

My mobile number: +91.98415 97744

Alternatively, you can leave your words of encouragement in the comments section of this blog post and I will show this to her.  You may also email to and I will show your message to Krithya.

We received the books from the printer yesterday and here is Krithya, obviously jubilant, with the first copy.

Here is how the story book looks like.

We look forward to your presence and your words of encouragement. Thanks in advance.
