From Idea to Author
In September of 2012 a friend invited me to lecture to Bachelor of Mass Media students at R. D. National College, Bandra. I was very excited about it: my first discourse at the very same college I attended from 1996 to 1998. I was amused to see everyone had laptops and were eager to take notes.
