Carrying the paper back home from the corner store is also like a mild workout!
As I flipped through the main section, I was pleasantly surprised to find my name mentioned in one of the articles. +Nirmala Ganapathy, India correspondent of The Straits Times, messaged me a few weeks ago to ask me about my view on the Amul cartoons. I wasn't sure when it was going to be published but I am happy it came out on a Saturday.
