book reading

July 21 at British Council auditorium; 7 pm: Journalist-turned-writer Aniruddha Bahal reads from his maiden novel, Bunker 13.

The book, published by Faber and Faber, underlines the world of political corruption and violence through well-orchestrated movements. The protagonist is Minty Mehta (aka MM), a thrill-seeker and disgraced self-destructive ex-Army cadet with a taste for hard drugs and kinky sex. He is also a shrewd reporter who will do anything to get a story.... The contemporary, cynical novel comes from first-hand experience of the man of Tehelka fame.
