letter from a teenager

Dear Amitav Ghosh,

I am a 14 year old teenager from Mysore, India and a HUGE fan of your writing and I seriously think you are India’s finest English author of all time, along with Salman Rushdie and R.K.narayan. My favourite books of yours are ‘The Calcutta Chromosome’, which haunted me for many days with questions over life and death, and ‘Sea of Poppies’, which not only deserved the Man Booker prize but also the Noble Prize for literature. Never have I read such a fine and picturesque novel. Your writing evokes a sense of pleasure that cannot be described in words. Though all of my friends prefer ‘Trash-tales’ of IIT’s and call centres, I proudly call you my FAVOURITE AUTHOR. Please keep writing these awesome books.

PS- When is the third book in the Ibis trilogy going to be released?

Nikhil Ravishankar
