Samit, the book tour seems to be going great. Congratulations! I also read the short piece that you did for HT Brunch. You're everywhere, which is fabulous.

Hilarious, indeed! Whatever would Raphael, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo say?

Thank you. One of the best hyperlinks ever. It moves one to tears. Raj Comics was last seen contacting Baba Sehgal for an original version of Vanilla Ice's "Go Ninja Go" for the Fighter Toads movie (coming soon!).

I am a big fan of the Raj comics site. Outrageous physical attributes of its Action heroes (nagaraj is 7'1"!), and brilliantly worded descriptions ("millions of micro-snakes reside in his body").

Just love it.

They started out as really cool 'ninja turtles' derivatives. I was hoping they would take the cheeky myth far. But Raj Comics has declined over the years. The books are now 'made for TV'. And there isn't any TV either. Just the made for TV books.

Samit Basu! Hi! Just finished your new book. It mentioned you were a Delhi-based blogger - managed to trace you out today.
Yeah, I have done Fighter Toads way back in 1993-94 when it was released. I remember having to save enough pocket money to buy the book which was then exorbitantly priced at 20 bucks! I still have a copy of the book somewhere buried deep in a trunk. :) Cheers, Guru

Haven't read MS yet... though thoroughly enjoyed SP. Any intentions of coming down to Jamshedpur anytime soon? Maybe you have some ideas on where Management and Creativity meet?
