At a university in my hometown...

I was invited to deliver a talk at the University of Mumbai yesterday, but I was warned not to expect the audience to participate the way they do in the United States. Hmmmm. The talk was scheduled for an hour but went on for two, with not a single person leaving the auditorium. Students and researchers had read my book, followed it up with their independent research, and had question after question on the issue, on the craft of storytelling, and on the ways they could get involved. My presence wasn't even needed anymore. Students in Seattle, be warned. I am coming back with a heck of a lot of expectations.
