Jagdish Raja, Founder Trustee of Jagriti Theatre in discussion with writer Suresh Menon about his book Why Don't You Write Something I Might Read.

"This is a book under 300 pages packed with views, quotations, comments about people of letters from across the years and countries. I read it and hoped that I could remember half of what I had read and who I had read about. I would then be known as a well-read man!" - Jagdish Raja
