Going Home in the Rain and Other Stories by Monideepa Sahu, the latest title from Kitaab, was launched in the temple city of Bhubaneswar , India on May 22nd.

Cyclone Roanu, which lashed the coasts of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, gave the city’s book lovers some respite at the appointed hour. The courtyard garden of Walking Book Fairs bookstore filled with an enthusiastic crowd as the evening drew on. A little reading and lively conversations over tea kept everyone engaged.

Stories, and the inspiration behind stories, were shared by the author. And when it was time to leave, signing books kept the author busy. Everyone left with armloads of books, and the anticipation of hours of happy reading to come.

Copies of this book are available on
