Lalbagh - the magnificent horticultural park in Bangalore, with its trees, shrubs, lakes, ponds, flower-gardens, the Glass House, the Bandstand, gazebos, the Rock and little temples - is the setting for this collection of short stories. Everyone who lives in Bangalore, or who has stayed there for some time, or passed through the city, will have heard of, and probably visited, the park.

This collection is inspired by the many hours I spent walking in Lalbagh, having lived close by for many years, where I observed others like myself, as well as the flora and fauna that the park abounds in.

This set of stories, probably the first of its kind to be set in an iconic park in India, chronicles the eccentric adventures of a wide range of colourful characters in Lalbagh. You will wander through the park along with the bird-watcher, the singer, the chanter, the siddha and many others. Readers, especially those familiar with Bangalore or Lalbagh, will find these stories a joy to read.

About the Author: I have always been fond of reading and could be frequently found browsing at libraries in Bangalore in my youth. Thanks to my parents, Janaki and Narayana Kurup, getting books to read was never a problem, and it is to them that I owe my lifelong interest in words.

I hold qualifications from IIT, Madras and IIM, Bangalore. Among other things, I was instrumental in setting up and running Yoga Alliance International, the first world-wide Indian certification organisation for yoga schools.

Books I have written include Yogatma: the spirit of Yoga, and Fat Cats and other stories (available on Amazon and other platforms). My short stories have appeared in many publications, including The Statesman, The Hindu, Hindustan Times, and Deccan Herald.
