The Sapna Book House on Residency Road is perhaps one of the larger bookstores which is accessible from all parts of Bangalore. It comes upon you as you go down Brigade Road and turn left - you can see it across the road from Pub World.
The event was scheduled for 6. I reached the bookstore early with Nisha and Akshar, by 515 or so. Met Sreevatsa and his team from Jaico, the Sapna Book House people, Debosmita who was in charge of proceedings. I met young Santosh Shobhan who is pursuing his ug course in English Lit-Theatre-Mass Comm at Christ College. He is of course Captain Gautam from Golconda High School and looks more assured and more debonair than before. Sridhar Narayan and his friends, Rajju (Ravi Ramarapu), Giri, Unni and his wife, Diwakar, Ram Mohan (Infosys), Narayan and his wife, Sunil Shivasale and his cousins and aunt, Chokappan, Madhu (BEML, fast bowler), Anita Raj Narayan (dear friend), Srinivas Babu, Puppy and Hari Rao from Osmania MBA, and many more dear friends.
