Hi Guys,
It’s been some time since we updated our blog but we’ll try to make up for it in the next few days. For today we have for you a candid  interview with Madhuri Banerjee the author of Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas by our in house book geek Arundati. Hope you’ll enjoy it.

Madhuri: 30. Like my character Kaveri.

Dial-a-Book: What happens after virgins lose their virginity? Do they transform into completely different beings?
Madhuri: YES. Have you seen The Lord of the Rings when Frodo wears the ring? It’s like that!

Dial-a-Book: According to you, is sex the only difference between man and woman?
Madhuri:NO. Women’s brains are more evolved.

Dial-a-Book: Do you believe in certain sex etiquette. Or even a gender etiquette? Explain…
Madhuri: Yes. Etiquette: Please ask before you want to have sex.

Dial-a-Book: What aspect of sex is most exciting? What aspect most dumbing?
Exciting: The better half going and getting you a glass of wine post coitus!

Madhuri: Madonna. But I was 9.

Dial-a-Book: What’s the most amazing sex literature you’ve read?
Madhuri: Penthouse letters.

Dial-a-Book: When did you first fall in true-love? Describe?
Madhuri: When I was 2. Since then we’ve understood each other till date. My true love is a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

Dial-a-Book: It’s remarkable, the many roles you juggle at home and outside it, mother, wife, professional, writer, etc. But what if you were a spinster?
Madhuri: It would be harder.

Dial-a-Book:How do you think spinsters will take to your book?
Madhuri: I hope they like it. Especially since I’m not calling them spinsters

Dial-a-Book: When did you first start writing seriously? How easy/difficult was it to write a book and finding a publisher for it?

 Dial-a-Book: What according to you is the future of Indian TV soap heroine?
Has her journey been a cause of excitement or concern for you? Enlighten us?

Madhuri:Yes. Reading enlightens.

Dial-a-Book: Does sex have anything to do with feminism?
