Launching of the book " Os Indianos " in Sao Paulo

The book " Os Indianos" ( The Indians ) in Portuguese was launched yesterday in Livraria Cultura, Sao Paulo. The book seem to have been well received. Florencia had to sign autographs for around 200 books at the launching event.

The author of the book is Florencia Costa, a Brasilian journalist who lived in Mumbai for the last five years. She has now married Shoban Saxena, a Times of India journalist and the two have just moved to to Sao Paulo.

The book is going to be launched in Rio next month.

This is the second book on India written by Brazilian journalists. In 2007 Patricio Campos de Melo from Estado de Sao Paulo published a book called as " A India - de miseria a potencia ( the India from misery to potency)

I hope Shoban will write a book on Brazil for the Indian audience to reciprocate what his wife has done. No Indian has written a book on Brazil. It is time...
