It was a night to remember as the litterati and glitterati enjoyed cocktails and dinner while author Nickunj Malik sang Babuji dheere chalna in her melodious voice. Actually, sama hai suhana would have been more appropriate for the occasion. Malik has put together her 100 best columns in this book. Launched by Nobel Laureate Sir VS Naipaul and eminent writer Farrukh Dhondy, Talespin is a book to read for all occasions. Nickunj writes a regular column for Jordan Times. She began her journalism career in Dubai 22 years back with Khaleej Times.
