OOTW Blog Tour, Day 2: Through the Tollbooth and Chicken Spaghetti

Out of the Way! Out of the Way!

On Day 2, the road wanders Through the Tollbooth with Sarah Sullivan, and over to Chicken Spaghetti with writer, teacher, and blogger Pooja Makhijani.

Here's a video with my mother reading the opening of the book in three languages: Hindi, Bangla, and Tamil.

And here's a picture of the cover in all 9 languages.


  1. Oh, Uma - how wonderful to see and hear your mother! Thanks!

  2. Wow! That is really neat. It is fun to see your mother too.
    What languages did she read? I'm guessing Tamil, Hindi and ? And in what order?

  3. Sorry, folks. Had to take the video down as Youtube was adding so-called "related material" at the end that couldn't quite be disabled. I'll have it back up some other way, later.

  4. What languages did she read? I'm guessing Tamil, Hindi and i like hindi.

  5. Hindi, Bangla, Tamil, in that order. And "liking" a language is not only purely subjective but in a way irrelevant--each spoken and written language in the world has its own beauty, and the astonishing range of them is a thing of wonder. To me they're all beautiful, they all have their own music.
