A matter of ceremony

Attending a book reading in Bangalore recently, I was struck by how different such events are in India from those in America, and how the contrasting styles epitomize the two cultures.

Yup, it’s the same Shoba who writes ‘The Good Life’ column in LiveMint; invariably, her astute observations and keen writing drawing a chuckle out of us anytime, everytime.
