  1. Vicki,

    Are you going to this? I’m from Nepal so I was pretty excited that Nepal was included on this list. When people talk about South Asia they just forget about us – so it was cool to be mentioned.

    I’ve read “God of Small Things” – its a masterpiece. Absolutely brilliant. I remember reading it and I was just transfixed. I’ll have to check out the others on the list.

    Hey Shailsech – I don’t think I can make it to the first one, but definitely. I’m going to read the book either way.
