Singaporean author Sudhir Thomas Vadaketh is looking for a companion to work and travel with him for his next travel book, tentatively called From Kerala to Shaolin. He writes:
Dear friends, after months of planning, am very excited to say that I have begun research for my second book. The project’s working title is From Kerala to Shaolin.
Essentially, I hope to write a book about China and India using martial arts as the narrative thread. The bulk of the research will be a six-month overland trip from South India to North China, Jun – Dec 2013. During that time, I intend to visit at least 6 martial arts studios in India and 6 in China. A very rough route is pictured below, with Kerala and Shaolin marked with stars.
I will take a break once a month, and return to Singapore for a few days, to see my wife and eat nasi lemak. From Jan 2014, I will begin writing proper. I hope to have the book done by 2015.
