Release of "Another Goa" (Margao, Monday, Nov 16, 2009)

Just a few lines to share with you the news about the upcoming release of my book, called 'Another Goa' (Broadway and Goa,1556, Pp 192, 2009). This book contains some of my favourite work on Goa, and is being released on Monday, November 16, 2009 at a function on National Press Day at the Ravindra Bhavan Margao.

I am grateful to Goanet for encouraging my growth as a writer and enabling me to get feedback (both positive and importantly critical too). This network has also helped spur me on to focus more on a Goa where the returns in mainstream journalism can otherwise be disencouraging.

Thank you warmly for being part of this journey.

The cover of the book -- done artistically by Bina Nayak -- is visible
online here:

Regards and hoping to see you if you're around Margao! FN

PS: The National Press Day function begins at 10 am, with a talk by
noted journalist P. Sainath, and a panel discussion. The book release
should be later in the morning.
