Some great characters I met in books. I can imagine how it would be like if all these characters met under one roof: Wow!

I would have also liked to meet a few...all the beautiful blondes from all the American fiction I read...but seriously, someone like Birbal. And Tirsingrao, a rustic Marathi superman who drove an Eveready Half-ton-whatever that means. Of living legends, I would like to meet Nelson Mandela, to find out what he is made of...certainly not the same stuff we are.
Tirsingrao looks like a good fellow to have in the inner circles. Specially with an Eveready Half-ton, he would be formidable.
I want to meet Meghna.
Good for you anonymous. c/o Dona Paula statue, Dona Paula, Goa last I heard.
No I don't think so. That wacko Siddharth might stumble in all sick and puking.
