Book talks

The quotation for the book on tourism through JLRs eyes has been agreed and the dates for the launch are on the 11th of February or the next two days.

That means that this is one of the rare projects in India which has actually been preponed and that by 4-5 months. This also means that in the hurry to complete the entire 224 pages of texts and photos, one dosen't screw up this effort.

So while scares are there, light shines as well.

11 February by 10 am with most text and photos in places and design on as I write this.... hope abounds

Book talks

As you know, we are doing a book about tourism and JLRs role in promoting ectourism. I am working like anything to ensure that the book comes out by the 11 of February, on the occasion of a conference being planned by us.

I have titled the book, ' INTO THE WILD' but as we know, there is already a movie by that name. It is not clear if we can use this title.

I would be deeply grateful if a suggestion come from you for the title of the book....

Can you think of something??????
