Well, there's good news for her fans as she recently put up a post about how she's writing a sequel to her 1999 book 50 and Done, besides working on a new version of the title.
"I wrote 50 and Done in 1999 at the cusp of the millennium. It was my first book and a collection of short stories and verse. It was set in the Bombay of the '90s and was dedicated to my father who was killed in a road accident at 49, a few days before his 50th birthday. He was on a mission in the Dominican Republic to help victims of mine bombs by teaching locals the Jaipur foot technology. The revised edition will have the same stories and a few new ones. The sequel will bring back some of these characters in the Mumbai of 2020," she told this diarist.
