Jaico, my publisher, had originally planned to launch Ranga Half Pants, my debut novel, in January 2016. But after consultations with the editors, we decided to push the book-launch out to April. The new financial year plus the summer holidays in May, are something we want to ride on. So if the three of you were wondering ‘What the hell happened to that book?’, hang in there. I have a lot planned for the launch (details of which I can’t divulge right now), but I assure you that it is going to be a lot of fun.
I know I haven’t been updating my blog at all (I am talking to you Jahnavi). I intend to restart blogging soon. I have been doing a lot of writing work in the recent past. I co-wrote a couple of movies. I wrote the screenplay for one of the episodes of Darr Sabko Lagta Hai. And so many synopses which I pitched to many production houses and directors. I have also been writing a lot of material for my stand up comedy. And, here is the news that I am sure will excite you. I have started working on my second novel.
After dabbling in many vocations (as a writer), I have gained clarity on what keeps me ticking. Going forward, I will be focusing on writing novels and performing as a stand up comedian. The only two places where I don’t have to worry about being myself. I am enjoying this journey and I look forward to meeting you in person, very soon.
2015 was a great year. I know, I know it is not over until it is over. I hope you had a great year too. Have a safe, fun, mad holiday season! Over and out.
P.S. Pay-check is the worst addiction in the world.
