Deepika Shetty e-mailed me this morning to tell me about her Off the Shelf segment on Channel News Asia which features the Ubud Readers' and Writers Festival. Sadly we aren't able to receive it here, but those of you in Singapore and other parts of Asia might manage to catch it when it airs tomorrow.
Deepika seemed to be everywhere at once at Ubud with her little camera, and she certainly got some of the best quotes of the festival on film.
My favourite was from Madhur Jaffrey talking about her memoir Climbing the Mango Trees ... and of course talking about food:
We had milk in paneer, milk in sweets, dumplings and rice, cheese sweets, without milk, India this highly lactose country would just wither away.And there's a little Sharon soundbite on there too ...
More Ubud stuff coming soon.
