In early 2008, I started narrating my back to India experiences at the Return to India forum (www.r2iclub.com). Over the next two years, my online diary got followers and received a few pageviews. (more than 80,000 at the last count).
While I was certainly not the top poster, and definitely not the most popular one, the readers did provide a lot of positive feedback. Quite a few suggested that I should write a book based on my experiences. In 2010, marriage happened. And then another suggestion came.. rather, it was a request that I could not refuse. This is the story behind Now, Returned to India- the first book in a four part series that I am currently writing.
Even though Now, Returned to India is based on my diary, it is a work of fiction, and by no means do I intend to write a sob story.
