Opal Mehta

Who is Opal Mehta? Read her Wikipedia entry (accessed Dec 31, 2013).

The Opal Mehta book on Queen's Road this Saturday. I think this is not a pirated version. I was tempted to pick it up, for posterity, but didn't. I don't think anyone will remember Kavya after a few months. The phrase "internalizing" may be the butt of some jokes for some time, but even that will pass. The young plagiarist will be forgotten... So why waste a hundred rupees or so? It's interesting to see however how keyed in are these street vendors on what is hot and what is more likely to sell.
