India Smiles : Humor Book From Penguin &

It’s an awesome experience bringing out a book. I can tell you it’s not easy. So, when I just heard from Penguin Publishers that the book that you see above has gone to press and it will hit the bookshelves this July, I was super glad. That’s awesome news. I was part of the team bringing out the book and the pride I exude is obvious.

Last year, Sulekha launched a fairly high-profile humor writing contest. We received over 5000 entries which were democratically shortlisted by the Sulekha’s global community of readers. The final selection of winners was made by a very distinguished jury consisting of Khuswant Singh, Ruskin Bond, Ashok Mahadevan (Editor of Reader’s Digest) amongst many.

Here’s the blurb from the book.
“The book brings together the best of humor writing. Real-life accounts, of desperate parents lining up potential sons-in-law for unconventional NRI girls, young mothers struggling to make sense of their suddenly topsy-turvy lives, droll accounts of the unintentionally funny collision between technology and tradition, these are unpretentious, tongue-in-cheek stories, sure to bring a smile to your face”
