Many of us see the eminent Mr Shreekumar Varma , sitting in the club lawns , little knowing the brilliance of his work.
The MGC library , took the opportunity to invite him for a reading of his latest book. Kipling’s Daughter.
The book reading was hosted by Mr R Thiagarajan on Saturday, 19th March 2022@ The Rendezvous.
Mr Thiagarajan introduced the speaker and mentioned his literary works. Mr Shreekumar Varma , spoke about the background of writing this book. While many of his friends were urging him to write about Anglo–Indians , it was fate that flashed the name, Kipling’s Daughter, on his drive down the ECR .He kept the audience well entertained by reading episodes / passages from the book.
It was a delightful evening with the author who often quotes ” I feel like a writer all the time.Except when I am writing!“
