REINVENTING
I have been making every effort to continuously reinvent myself. From writing to story telling, from spinning yarns to sharing values, from book reading to mentoring I have tried to reach out to as many young people, in as many ways, as possible. I am now considered a fairly popular name in the public speaking circuit and am often invited by schools to conduct creative writing workshops and book stores for Book Reading sessions as well as Meet the Author programmes.
Of late I have been undertaking promotional tours in different cities including Chennai, New Delhi and Hyderabad. The response of the young and the young at heart has been fantastic. For instance in January 2009, I covered six schools across Hyderabad and Secunderabad and the experience was mind blowing. In a couple of workshops the strength was nearly 400 while the ideal for this kind of an event is considered to be around 50. Yet I had a terrific time with the ignited minds rooting for me and my stories. After the workshop the kids would almost mob me with their class copies, pieces of paper and even slam books, asking for autographs. I felt like a rock star and kept praying that time would stand still.... A ten year old child came and told me, "Uncle, this was the happiest day of my life!" Another one unleashed an affectionate instruction, "Sir you have to come to a school once every month!"
