1. Well-known writer Kalpana Swaminthan (also a surgeon) has tried to create an Indian Miss Marple through her Detective Lalli series of mysteries. I have read only this one book from the series-- and I found it strictly ok,perhaps a one-time read. Check out The Secret Gardener if you like mysteries.

2. A lovely inspiring book --Legacy, edited by Sudha Menon.
3.A Karan Johar flick in a book!
4. This is a pretty good book, quite revealing about real Delhi --but don't expect a great thriller. It's more a readable and fairly witty critique of Delhi, the press, the police...all that we read about Delhi.
