I’m starting a new series on this blog, called How They Did It. And yes, like the name suggests, each post will chronicle the journey of a successful author, journalist or blogger. Each interview will delve into how that writer overcame the usual challenges faced by the newbie, to emerge successful (and published!).
I’m happy to begin the series with an interview with one of the genuinely funny authors in contemporary Indian popular fiction — Yashodhara Lal. Her first book (published by HarperCollins India), with the kitschy title of Just Married, Please Excuse, was a laugh riot. Her new book Sorting out Sid promises to be just as funny.
