Such a strange, happy moment: when you're ready (almost) to let go of the book you've been writing for the last four years.

Sent Black River, my Delhi novel, to my agent this week. A sense of great relief that it's done, but also a sadness other writers will understand, as you prepare to leave the world you've been obsessed by for so many years.


@nilanjanaroy Congratulations!!! Now we wait to swim in those waters.

@Sadiqkazi Thank you, Sadiq! It'll be a while before it comes out, but it finally feels like it's done. :)

@nilanjanaroy Once I attended a reading session of Kiran Nagarkar (when Cuckold was released). He had mentioned then...he would not be able to tell much about the book. Rather he would dip his head in a bucket of cold water, since all that he had to write was in the book.
Are you also going through similar feelings? :-)
