Hope you are doing well!
I woke up today, looked into the mirror and realised that I have known you for more than 40 years now.
This month we got a golden opportunity to have a conversation with a very special person. We are sure that reading this interview will evoke many awe-inspiring emotions in you. You would feel as if you are sitting in a storytelling session which is deep, enriching and profound. The special guest is none other than Padma Shri Geeta Dharmarajan. She is a writer, editor, educator and the Founder and President of Katha, a nonprofit organisation that she founded in 1988. In spite of being a go-getter and someone through whose journey we can learn so much, the enthusiasm in her voice is so childlike and infectious that you can’t remain un-enamoured.
As a kid, she was always teased. As a grown-up, she was always underestimated. Her teachers were proud of her creative work but her classmates were always jealous. Her books were beautiful, but she wasn’t given a chance to publish them. Yes, this is the story of all of J.K Rowling’s adventures.

The fruit basket,

I hope this letter finds you in a “ripe” state of health. I had visited your home earlier, to get a bar of chocolate, and happened to catch a glimpse of you. As always, the sight of you got me salivating, and I started thinking of ways to use (aka eat) you.
