People, we have another list - the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize shortlist. Quite a strange list and I am not sure how one judges such different things. Anyway, some common contenders on this one and the Booker - White Tiger and A Case of Exploding Mangoes. We could do a Mela for this prize too but let's not overdo it. And anyway, I have a better idea. All of you go buy your second copy of the one book of poetry on that list and let us know what you think. I promise to get your copy specially autographed by the authoress herself. Promise.
