Bombay Wali Comes to Mumbai - Storytelling with Veena Gokhale
Veena Gokhale, itinerant Bombay Wali and former Bombay journalist, is excited to present her short story collection by the same name at Doolally Taproom, Khar. Veena will also present her recent novel Land for Fatimah. Award-winning poet, Menka Shivdasani, will be engaging in an on-stage interview with Veena Gokhale on her fiction writing.

We hope you will make it to a reading and discussion with the author, who was inspired by our tough, tantalising city and its varied cast of cosmopolitan citizens to write Bombay Wali.
On Bombay Wali: Twelve stories that provide startling glimpses of contemporary life in Bombay, and elsewhere. An innocuous jazz concert that awakens painful memories for a middle-aged professor and caregiver, a wealthy business woman compelled by the desire to hurt her best friend, an errant page that leads a journalist on a wild goose chase. Tales about friendship and repulsion, family ties and freedom; violence, public and private; ambition and uncertainty, alienation and acceptance, growing up and growing old.
This event is part of Point of View's #MadeByWomen series. Established in 2005, Made by Women celebrates women film makers, writers, artists, etc.
An immigrant shape shifter who has worked with international development and environment organizations, Veena lives in Montreal (her 10th city!) with her partner, Marc-Antoine, and flies back often to visit her family and friends in India.

Autographed copies of Bombay Wali will be on sale, and snacks provided. Cash bar. If you have any accessibility requirements, drop us a message!
