Hi all,

With Ganesha entering our homes and city, we do hope that his benign blessings drive the flu away ….. and things return to normalcy. Our hearts go out to the affected families ravaged by the loss of young lives and we hope that Ganesha will give them the strength to re-build their lives.

A lot of happenings for us in twistntales. Reshma moves out to focus full time on her paintings and don’t be surprised if you hear of her paintings going up in Sotheby’s. She’s very much going to be in Pune, and like the others before her, you will see her around off and on! Vaishnavi has joined us recently and is getting suitably initiated into the “ways” of twistntales! Kshitija has found her soul-mate and is currently seeing stars in all the books @ the Store.

With many schools closed for over 3 weeks, and with kids having nothing to do, unable to venture out for fear of the flu, we in twistntales have started a blog where kids can write, draw and post their thoughts. It’s called There is a link to it from the twistntales blog. A few kids have already started writing on it. If you think your kid writes or draws well, kindly send us your entries as attachments in Word or jpg files and we can post them on to the blog (only soft copies on email to please). Please ensure that you send details of name, class and School). Kindly spare some time and check out the kids blog!

Ganesha has parked himself in our lane! You need to therefore park outside our lane (opp. Mantri Lawns) and walk down to the Store!

Lots of new books, including Jaswant Singh’s news-making one !

New Books:

Hawaii, a paradise for beautiful supermodels to have photo shoots at the most glamorous hotel… Also, where Kim McDaniels goes missing. Ex-cop Ben Hawkins, now a reporter for the LA Times, gets the assignment. The ineptitude of the local police force defies belief, hence Ben has to start his own investigation and has the story of his life.
Swimsuit is about an unprecedented pattern killer who upped the ante to new heights, an assassin like no other before or since. A heart-pounding story of fear and desire, transporting you to a place where beauty and murder collide and unspeakable horrors are hidden within paradise.

“The Wish Maker” By Ali Sethi @ Rs.499/- (Pgs 406)

The Wish Maker is a confident and personal debut. Ali Sethi is a fresh voice from a new generation of Pakistani novelists.
Zaki returns to Lahore to celebrate the wedding of his cousin and childhood companion Samar Api. But home is not what it used to be anymore; with Musharraf in power and the flurry of wedding preparations, take him back to his past: his childhood as a fatherless boy growing up in a household of outspoken women, and his and Samar’s intertwined journeys from youth to adulthood. Inspired by American soaps and Bollywood films that they watched together, their world held the promise of all sorts of forbidden love. Then, when Zaki supports one of Samar’s romantic schemes, the family suffers the disastrous consequences. But as his fate diverges from Samar’s, he comes to understand the world around him better.
The Wish Maker is an engaging family saga, an absorbing coming-of-age story, a brilliant example of the new global novel and a sad but sometimes funny song about the way we live now.

“The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole 1999-2001” by Sue Townsend @ Rs.350/- (Pgs 282)

These diaries were confiscated for 7 years by HM police – in the mistaken belief that they might incriminate the author – these diaries tell of Adrian Mole’s lost years on the cusp of the 2nd millennium. Adrian has become a martyr: a single father bringing up two young boys alone in an uncaring world. With the ever unattainable Pandora pursuing her ambition to become Labour’s first female PM; his over-achieving half-brother, Brett, sponging off him; and literary success as elusive as ever, Adrian tries to make ends meet. But little does he realize that his own modest life is about to come to the attention of those charged with policing The War against Terror…

“The Unbearable Lightness of Scones” by Alexander McCall Smith @ Rs.295/- (Pgs 328)

Here is a 44 Scotland Street novel…a joyous, charming portrait of city life and human foibles, which moves beyond its setting to deal with deep moral issues and love, desire and friendship. To the casual observer, the great enlightened city of Edinburgh, home of no-nonsense philosophers and cream teas, might appear immune to the rollercoaster of strong emotions. But at 44, Scotland Street, as Matthew and Elspeth embark on the risky enterprise of married love, the raffish portrait painter Angus Lordie has a premonition of disaster. And soon enough Irene Pollock is shocked to learn that her son Bertie harbours an unsuitable ambition; the gloriously vain Bruce discovers a wrinkle and confronts rejection; and Angus finds himself facing the consequences of unbridled bliss, not to mention a large Glaswegian gangster bearing gifts…

Navigating between her colicky baby, finding a perfect maid, postnatal depression, freelance work, demanding fitness instructors, and friends who careen between inappropriate lovers and alcohol, Mira wonders if she will ever gain entry into the kingdom of chic moms, juggle a baby and work, and shed those twenty kilos?! Bringing Up Vasu is a true coming-of-age read with a funny yet tender peek into the pleasures and pitfalls of becoming a first-time mother.

This is Pinki Virani’s first work of fiction. Here comes a story through the 6 degrees of separation which thread together a story of a life-changing weekend. Pinki examines the crisis which underlies the façade of progressive modernity that is present-day India through a set of characters you may have met. Saraswati the main character dies among her beloved books and until her body is discovered, her spirit is free to play sutradhar and watch over all she holds dear. They are about a society where change has to be wrested from tradition, often with calamitous effects and where hope constantly chafes against the trepidation of socio-political chaos.

All four have a friendship that spans over 20 years-a friendship born out of their years at a girls’ school in Delhi. Beautiful, intelligent and secretive, they were the top clique, the girls everyone wanted to impress-until the arrival of 15 year old Lily who instantly threatens their superiority.
Coming together for a school reunion, the women must confront a secret that has haunted their adult lives…A secret that binds them which could also destroy them…


“Straight Drive” by Sunil Gavaskar @ Rs. 295/- (Pgs 239)

Sunil ‘Sunny’ Gavaskar is the idol of millions the world over. His magic with the bat created several records and won the hearts of as many. Even his severest critics had to concede that he was indeed the ‘Little Master!’
His transition from a cricketer to being a critic and a columnist, whom the entire media hankers after, has indeed been a welcome one. As he celebrates his sixtieth birthday, there could be no better tribute than an anthology of ‘sixty’ of Sunil Gavaskar’s best articles. They reflect the man and are like him – ‘no holds barred’! He minces no words and says it like it is. He talks about the greats of yesteryears, his heroes that include the late M.L.Jaisimha and Don Bradman amongst others. He talks about what ails the cricketing world and also how the Indian cricket team is truly a force to reckon with. Straight Drive is a timeless, quite like the man, and is a must read for all die-hard fans of Sunil Gavaskar…

“Laxman Rekhas” Times of India @ Rs.199/- (Pgs 127)

Celebrated cartoonist R.K. Laxman has gone to soaring heights in a career that spans six decades. No common feat of an uncommon man!
Playing with every shade of humour – wit, satire, irony, slapstick, buffoonery, tragicomedy – each cartoon featured a very alive issue and ranged from issues pertaining to a political event to a public person to socio-economic factors. The super success of a coffee-table book by the same name (brought out by the Times of India in 2005) has inspired them to bring out an abridged version for a wider reach. This current work has lots of reflections of Laxman’s genius

“The Thread of God In My Life” by R.M.Lala @ Rs.399/- (Pgs 194)

Editor, publisher, author, Russi M.Lala became a journalist at the age of 19 and entered book publishing in 1951, establishing and managing the UK division of Asia Publishing House, the first Indian publisher to be established in London. In 1964 he became co-founder of the newsmagazine Himmat Weekly, which he edited for the next decade. He was also the Director of Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, Tata’s premier charitable foundation, for 18 years. This is his autobiography…It speaks of his strength of belief which supported him through 2 serious illnesses, healed a broken marriage, taken him from financial adversity to financial security and guided him through four careers over 2 continents. His most recent work is The Romance of Tata Steel.

“Gandhi & Churchill: The Epic Rivalry That Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age” by Arthur Herman @ Rs. 480/- (Pgs 721)

This is a powerful tale of the monumental clash between two of the giants of the 20th century – Mohandas Gandhi and Winston Churchill. India’s moral leader and Great Britain’s greatest Prime Minister. Born 5 years and 7000 miles apart, they became embodiments of the nations they led. Both are living icons, idolized and admired, they remain enduring models of leadership in a democratic society. Yet the truth was they were bitter enemies throughout their lives. For more than 40 years, they were locked in a tense struggle for the hearts and minds of the British public, and of world opinion. Although they met only once, their titanic contest of wills would decide the fate of nations, continents, peoples, and ultimately an Empire.

“No Limits; The Will To Succeed” by Michael Phelps with Alan Abrahamson @ Rs. 480/- (Pgs 228)

One of the greatest competitors the world has ever seen – Michael Phelps…from a teen sensation in Sydney, to bona fide phenomenon in Athens, after eight gold medals and seven world-record times – he is now a living Olympic legend. Raised by a single mother and diagnosed with ADHD, Michael’s success is imbued with defeating obstacles and earning one’s way. No Limits explores the hard work, commitment, and sacrifice that go into reaching any goal. Filled with anecdotes from family members, friends, team mates, and his coach, No Limits gives a behind-the-scenes look at the makings of a real champion, and reveals a step-by-step guide to realizing one’s dream.

“John Lennon the life” By Philip Norman @ Rs. 500/- (Pgs 853)

I thought, “I’m a genius, or I’m mad. Which is it?” – John Lennon

This masterly biography takes a fresh and penetrating look at every aspect of Lennon’s much-chronicled life, including the songs that have turned him, posthumously, into almost a secular saint. The book’s numerous key informants and interviewees include Sir Paul McCartney, Sir George Martin, Sean Lennon, whose moving reminiscence reveals his father as never before, and Yoko Ono, who speaks with sometimes shocking candour about the inner workings of her marriage to John. Honest and unflinching, as John himself would have wished, Norman gives us the whole man in all his endless contradictions – tough and cynical, hilariously funny but also naïve, vulnerable and insecure – and reveals how the mother who gave him away as a toddler haunted his mind and his music for the rest of his days.

“Mrinal Sen: Sixty years in search of cinema” By Dipankar Mukhopadhyay @Rs. 399/- (Pgs 317)

Mrinal Sen is one of India’s finest film-makers and one of its most renowned in international circles. Beginning his career as an audio technician in a Calcutta studio, Sen made a rather inauspicious feature debut with Raatbhore, a film he prefers to forget. In this classic biography, originally published as The Maverick Maestro, Dipankar Mukhopadhyay recounts the life and times of an iconic film-maker, from his association with the Indian Peoples’ Theatre Association, which shaped his world view, to his early experiences and frustrations as a film-maker. Warm and insightful, Mrinal Sen: Sixty Years in Search of Cinema is an invaluable portrait of an uncompromising artist who broke established norms of film-making and freely experimented with new styles and techniques of creative expression.

“In Defence of Food” by Michael Pollan @ Rs.325/- (Pgs 242)

In Defence of Food is a book about a problem that now faces people living in every modern industrial society: the problem of the Western diet, and how we might plot our escape from it. This book is also a celebration of food. By food, Michael Pollan means real, proper, simple food – not the kind that comes in a packet or makes nutritional claims about how healthy it is. More like the kind of food your great-grandmother would recognize.
If you’re prone to pondering the nutritional advice we’re spoon-fed by “experts”, this book is a very necessary antidote. Here is a groundbreaking book about the necessity of cherishing and preserving what’s left of our food culture.

“Liberty In The Age of Terror: A defence of civil liberty and enlightenment values” by A.C.Grayling @ Rs.599/- (Pgs 283)

This is a book about the war over civil liberties being waged in Western democracies. Because of the real and perceived threats posed by terrorism, many Western governments have been changing laws and introducing new laws that reduce civil liberties and citizens’ rights, in the hope of making their populations safer. This book is a reaction to this important development. Liberty, equality, justice, free speech, tolerance, privacy, identity and hope are the themes of this book, and so also is the question of the nature of the enemies of these things, and the dangers this tense age poses to them both from within and without. Grayling proposes a different way to respond that makes defending the civil liberties on which Western society is founded the cornerstone for defeating terrorism.

“Ecological Intelligence: Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy” by Daniel Goleman @ Rs.399/- (Pgs 276)

Most of us want to make the right choices as consumers. But can any one individual make a difference? And, more importantly, what are the right choices?...
This is an essential handbook for understanding the coming information revolution. It shows how the phenomenon of radical transparency – the availability of complete information about all aspects of a product’s history is about to transform the power of consumers and the fate of business. For the first time what they say will matter far less than what they actually do! In this provocative new book Daniel Goleman shows that everything about what we buy and why is set to change.

“A History of Economics” by John Kenneth Galbraith @ Rs.450/- (Pgs 324)

The Past as the Present – and the Present as the Future”. Economics as practised is obsessively concerned with the future. Yet the ideas are very much a product of their time and place. If we are to understand modern economics, we can do so only through an understanding of its past, including the powerful and vested interests that moulded the theories to their financial advantage. This is the message of John Kenneth’s brilliant account of the history of economics. This book puts economists and their ideas securely in the life of their times. Most important, it shows how some of those ideas shape not only our present but our future too. This book is packed with witty remarks together with a large number of facts that are new.

“Welcome to Advertising; Now Get Lost” by Omkar Sane @ Rs.395/- (Pgs 230)

“Why I Am A Believer: Personal Reflections On Nine World Religions” Edited by Arvind Sharma @ Rs. 450/- (Pgs 378)

Over time, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism, among other religions, have travelled across continents and seekers moved East in search of truth and salvation. What does this presage for our religious life today?
In this collection of nine essays, prominent scholars share their experiences as followers of their religions, touching on such basic questions as why people believe and why they do not, how beliefs are affected by encounters with other traditions, and is it possible to be at home in two or more traditions? While celebrating their own faiths, these scholars appreciate how encounters with other traditions have enriched their beliefs. The contributions affirm that a plural perspective is the alternative to exclusiveness and is the path to the meaningful pursuit of religion in our troubled times.

“The Case For God: What Religion Really Means” by Karen Armstrong @ Rs.520/- (Pgs 376)

For the first time in history, many millions of people want nothing to do with God. In the past, individuals went to great lengths to experience a sacred reality that they described as God, Brahman, Nirvana or Dao; indeed religion has been one of the defining characteristics of homosapiens. Why has the modern God become incredible? Does God have a future in this age of aggressive scientific rationalism? Armstrong shows that until recently science and religion were not at war with each other, but science has changed the conversation. The meaning of words such as ‘belief’, ‘faith’ and ‘mystery’ has been entirely altered, so that atheists and theists alike now think and speak about God – and, indeed, reason itself – in a way that our ancestors would have found astonishing.

“Ghost Train to the Eastern Star: On the Tracks of the Great Railway Bazaar” by Paul Theroux @ Rs.850/- (Pgs 485)

That feeling about trains, for instance. Of course he had long outgrown the boyish glamour of the steam engine. Yet there was something that had an appeal for him in trains, especially in night trains, which always put queer, vaguely improper notions into his head. – Georges Simenon
Thirty years ago Paul Theroux left London and travelled across Asia and back again by train. His account of the journey – The Great Railway Bazaar – was a landmark book and made his name as the foremost travel writer of his generation. Now Theroux makes the trip all over again to discover the changes that have swept the continents, and also to learn what an old man will make of a young man’s adventure. Covering his journey through Eastern Europe and Asia, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is a brilliant chronicle of change and an exploration of travel.

“The Undercover Scientist” by Peter J. Bentley @ Rs.340/- (Pgs 247)

Why do sparks fly when you put metal in the microwave? Why does it hurt so much when you get chilli pepper juice in your eyes? Why can cheese be kept for weeks but milk go off while your back is turned?....Have you found your answers to all that crap that pisses you off? Well, here’s the book that does just that!
‘Shit happens’, as the saying goes, but if you want to know why it does, The Undercover Scientist is on hand to explain all. Peter investigates the fascinating science that lies behind the most apparently mundane mishaps – from sleeping through the alarm to battling with immovable superglue – and shows you how to fight back against these everyday disasters.

“The Link: Uncovering Our Earliest Ancestor” by Colin Tudge @ Rs. 550/- (Pgs 262)

‘Ida’ – the most complete early primate fossil ever found, has been a secret until now. 47 million years old, Ida rewrites what we’ve assumed about the earliest primate origins. Her completeness is un-paralled. She lies inside a high-security vault, deep within the heart of one of the world’s leading natural history museums.
Colin Tudge, an award-winning science writer tells the history of Ida and her place in the world. This book offers a wide-ranging investigation into Ida and our earliest origins – and the cutting edge scientific detective story that followed her discovery. At the same time it opens a stunningly evocative window into our past and changes what we know about primate evolution and, ultimately, our own. Here is an astonishing new discovery that could change everything….

“Stop The Excuses! How to change lifelong thoughts” by Dr Wayne W. Dyer @ Rs.295/- (Pgs 257)

How do you get past the little voice that says, ‘I can’t’?...We all have doubts and fears, and these often get in the way of us realizing our dreams and being able to achieve anything we want. But we also have the unique power of self-mastery – the power to do whatever we want and act however we want. In his latest work, Dr Wayne examines how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours cause us to act as we do and how they can be changed to provide inspiration, encouragement and a vital support system for our self-esteem. You can change and live your life how you want – just stop the excuses!
