CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Sorry it has taken so long to get this to you, I kept meaning to read it before sending, but never did, I've now given up trying to force myself into reading it, so it's off to you :)
I discovered that this anthology was originally published in the US as Sulekha Select: the Indian Experience in a Connected World, a title which more accurately describes the writings within ('sulekha' means 'good writing', or even 'well-written' in English). This edition, published in India, bears the title Black, White, and various shades of Brown: the Best of Sulekha.com. I am a bit put off with this title, perhaps because of the emphasis on color rather than on the writing, which reflects such a rich, multi-layered experience of Desis at home and abroad at the dawn of the 21st century. I hope that once readers open the cover and begin reading, they will be entertained and enlightened, as i was.
Thanks, J4Shaw, for sharing this book with me. I hope it will touch many more hearts in its ongoing journey.
