Vazhutacaud, Trivandrum: Shashi Tharoor MP released the book ‘Howzzat Butterfingers’ by acclaimed writer Khyrunnisa. The function was hosted by Modern Book center along with Penguin India- the publishers.
“I have released more books than I have written. However, this is one of the rare occasions when I actually read the book I released. And I must say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this copy and I recommend it to all and sundry,” said Tharoor as he gave the first copy of the book to Sreedevi, a student of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Trivandrum.
The MP further expressed his wish that he had been the author of the book which according to him had a, “fun story, with lively prose and was absolutely enthralling to read.” The cricket theme of the book specifically appealed to Tharoor, an ardent follower of the game.
“The way in which the author has captured school days is remarkable. It is indeed surprising to see her, being a teacher herself, project the views of a child about teachers. The crowd present here is a tribute to the popularity of the writer that she is,” he added.
In her speech, Khyrunnisa wished Tharoor all the best for his upcoming marriage.
Prabha Nair, former Assistant Editor of ‘Tinkle’, offered felicitations at the function.
