Ghachar Ghochar was originally written in Kannada by Vivek Shanbhag and translated into English by Srinath Perur. The reasons why I picked this book are pretty simple: the cover, the rave reviews it had wherever I laid eyes on it, and the fact that a translation was getting as much international acclaim as Ghachar Ghochar was.
I found the title of this book, 50 Cups of Coffee: The Woes and Throes of Finding Mr. Right very, very intriguing. This reason, in conjunction with a slew of good reviews that made their way to me, compelled me to add it to my Amazon wish list. This was a long time ago. It was only recently that I bought it, and that too, because I was getting a really good deal. So I bought 3 more books along with it. 😀
