I'm doing a reading tomorrow - and for a change, it's not from Olives!!! Dubai based editor Meghna Pant is launching her first novel in the UAE. The book's already been a success in India, where it was published by Westland Books. It traces the story of Amara, an Indian girl struggling with modernity and tradition through a move to America and the collapse of her marriage to millionaire stock market man Prashant and her return to India to struggle with the conflict between modern independent-minded thinking and the duties of tradition.
Do pop along to the launch and join us - it's tomorrow at Jashanmal in Mall of the Emirates at 6.30pm.
