News update 1: I am one year older today. As to how old I am, you should never ask a thirty-four year old guy his age.
News update 2: I will be in India (New Delhi and Kolkata) in the month of March from the 1st to the 29th [dates finalized]. Tentative book reading dates are the 6th of March (New Delhi) and the 20th of March (Kolkata). Hope to meet a lot of you there.
News update 3: This is still not the cover. Just something I made to pass the time.
Have a happy new year everyone.

BTM lemme kno0w ur Kolkata dates in March, I will also be there during the 2-3rd weeks…
@Archita: bcos its great’Bong’ not Great’kannu’ 😀
@Joyjit, Then why am I in Delhi? The thing is that which cities I visit is the decision of the publisher. Nothing else.
Happy Birthday! Eagerly awaiting the book release.
Happy Birthday dude!!!!!!! Best of luck for your book……..
Happy birthday! Hope 2010 is the best year and a new bestselling author is born. 🙂
A very happy Birthday! You can chalk up another buyer for your book in me!! All the best for 2010!
The cover looks really attention grabbing.
Where exactly is the book reading taking place in New Delhi? We (Suhel Banerjee and I) will definitely attend.
Happy Birthday and a very happy new year!
Eagerly waiting for your book. When is it expected to hit the stands?
Happy Birthday GB! I am really looking forward to your book. I want to be there for the reading in New Delhi, could you plz tell me if we’ll be needing any passes to attend the function.
Have a Great year ahead…..:)
No passes will be needed. It will possibly be at a book store.
Happy Wala Birthday hai bhai! God Bless U!
Happy Birthday! Would certainly attend the book reading in Delhi…it’ll probably be in a book store you say… so few good book stores in Delhi though!! Me suspects it’ll be Crossword at Select Citywalk (its a crap CW though..in terms of the books it stores!!)… tell your publishers to book IHC 🙂
Happy BDay BG….Have fun!
Thanks for entertaining and hoping for more laughs in future!
Happy B’day GB
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARNAB
Happy birthday GB!
Looking forward to the book
Happy Birthday GB !!
Happy B’day GB and Good Luck for the book
Happy Birthday , hope to see you at Delhi
Instead of Ipods, guys commenting first should now ask for an autographed copy of your book !
Happy birthday dude.. Will certainly buy a copy. Hope to catch up with u at Delhi. Keep us posted on the dates and venue.
Doesn’t make sense to leave out bangalore. Most of the potential readers are netizens. Where else can you find more netizens?
Hap Hap Happy Birthday!
Dejected at you not making a trip to Bbay. Further dejected that I wont be able to make it to cal that time.
Can u come to bbay for a day? pretty please?
A very happy birthday Arnab. You mean you are still 34??????????
By the way, which bookstore in Kolkata would you visit? Looking forward to meeting you there.
Wishing you happy tidings for the New Year.
happys birthdays Arnabda!

Wish u a very happy birthday and hope to see u in delhi on 6th March which btw would be my birthday 🙂
Happy Birthday Arnab!
Have a great new year.
My best wishes on your B’day. Eagerly waiting for the book.

Happy birthday Arnab! I have long been a reader of your website and have enjoyed every visit.
The cover of the book looks very similar to Dave Barry’s website http://www.davebarry.com. Check it out
happy returns. come to Crossroads at Citywalk, Saket in Delhi. (thats close to where i stay)
by the way, i saw 3 idiots. (your favourable review made me struggle and advance book tickets worth 180 buckes each) i would have thought you would bring up the fact that the movie does not address a large section of the population that has no passion, no talent, doesn’t give a rat’s ass and still resents being shoved into the factory.
anyway, i enjoyed it despite realizing it was a silly, safe and calculated movie.
after celebertions, could you pl. see this
and include in your book in some form. It makes the blood boil.
Wish you a very Happy Birthday Arnab!! And Congrats on the book!
Happy Birthday Arnab……. BTW whom does the teddy get it from?….. The party guy…. Prabhuji or the gal??
Happy Birthday Arnab 😀
Eagerly awaiting your book release…will surely try to attend the book reading in Delhi.
Happy birthday 🙂
I hope this gets to be the cover.
heppy bharthday and methinks you should give out iPods with the book… at least for the first few copies 😀
Please resize the image (to something smaller), so it can be downloaded quickly over Indian internet connections.
Yaar what about Bombay? Bahut Naa-insaafi Hai Yeh!!!
And yeah HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAN!

Happy Birthday ! Your Kolkata book reading – will try to attend if u invite me. Hve a good time! NJOY!
Happy b’day and wish you a happy and prosperous new year
Happy belated burday to GB-da & Jishu-jethu, & an almmost timely one to 2010: Odyssey 2.
Btw, did you cut India Uncut from your bloglist? I went to rendezvous with blog-o-rama but IU was rohoshyomoy bhaabey odrishyo.
Could you add Gurgaon in the itinerary?
@Pankaj Roy- If you notice carefully, Uncut’s bloglist doesnt have GB too. Rohossomoy bhabe udhao. Shoooo….:)…it makes sense that he is udhao from this bloglist too. Plus cleanliness is a virtue. Vermin is not good for you, or the visitors of this blog.
Hum Bhi Agar Bachhe Hote
Naam Humara Hota Bablu Gablu
Khaane Ko Milte Ladoo,
Aur Duniya Kehti Happy Birthday To You !
Happy birthday GB..I just noticed that you share your birthday with a famous golfer who wants his lever moved 🙂
