UPDATED: Listen to Jaishree Misra on Offbeat, as she discusses her books, life, and selects her favourite songs for the Bollywood Music Special on the show.
I rarely send emails to people out of the blue. Well, the only time I do that is if I am passionate about something someone does and I want to invite them to be a part of OFFBEAT. So this usually involves musicians, because I prefer to write to someone that I admire directly, rather than getting someone else to send a generic "radio interview request" email. I have never ever emailed a writer before - at least I can't remember ever doing so - until about a month ago, when I stumbled upon the books of Indian born writer Jaishree Misra at the Poona Club Library about 2 months ago.
