Mona Thanks for the friend invite. I also love Psycho and Seinfeld.

Anuradha I'm cool with the former; I'm not going to comment about the latter right now.

The Biography is on my tbr; must get to it soon. As Frank Zappa so succinctly said, "too many books, too little time." No, I haven't read "Shantaram". Freddie Mercury is a god, for reals. I believe that. Metallica is also amazeballs. Oh, j'adore Seinfeld. I love Psycho. I also love Rear Window and Rope. I'm not too fond of Vertigo, to be honest.

Shatrugna Vadwlas I meant the Lizard King's Biography*

Shatrugna Vadwlas Anuradha,

Thanks for your addition and your reply. Building a friend list was definitely my intent. But I will be honest with you, to help spread the word about Go Clown was also a slight part of it.

Sometimes even the coolest breeze which leaves a pleasant feeling on our face, sneaks in through a crack! The official trailer has generated 100,000 views on FB, YouTube, and tens of thousands of more engagements in the social media world. I will let you do your own research. It is not your typical "Love Story" which is being churned out by the millions in India. In fact it is not at all a love story or the cliched stories that you get to read these days.

I too love the "Doors". Did you read the autobiography of Jim Morrison? And "Get High Legally" is a guarantee offered by Go Clown! I was really bowled out by a book called "Shantaram" Have you read it? I see you like Freddie Mercury. I used to listen to Metallica, a lot while in college. Currently a re-run of Seinfeld keeps me sane. "Psycho" is an all time favourite of mine, in Alfred Hitchock movies. How about yours?

Take Care and Good Luck!
Stay Hungry! (Unlike Steve Job(s), I have only one Job, so I am using only half of his quote!)

Anuradha Hey Vadwlas! Thanks for the friendvite; I generally don't tend to add people whose friends exceed their books, but I liked the earnestness of your reply. See you out there. :)

However, and this is a caveat; if you have added me merely to make me read your book, I'm not going to be too happy about it. I may sound rude, but I am very particular about my GR friend list.
