(from the non-pc HarperCollins book!) NO SEX, PLEASE; YOU ARE INDIANS!

(This book was written between 1994-97, published in 1997 by HarperCollins. Even I would be unable to write, let alone publish, such a non-pc book today!)

Essays, Humor, Political and Sociological Commentary, Cultural Critique: nearly 15 years after HarperCollins India published my controversial book, BEAUTY QUEENS, CHILDREN AND THE DEATH OF SEX (one magazine called it "classy humor"), four of its central chapters are published and available to readers everywhere as:

No Sex, Please: You Are Indians!

"An Afternoon With Miss India," (a real episode from a national television interview with a Miss Universe and a movie star); "Children and the Death of Sex", and "More Sex Please, We Are Indian"--three long essays. In addition, it also includes the interview with reputed senior author Khushwant Singh, and a brief excerpt from "Impressing the Whites," both of which allude to sexual repression in the land of the Kama Sutra.

The essays are a combination of humor, tongue-in-cheek statement, politically incorrect commentary, and serious examination of sexual issues and of modern Indians' often tortured and confused attitudes towards sex.

Because I want the book to be true to the moment, not a single word has been censored, despite possible political correctness objections or afterthoughts.

Congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.
