    • Thank you so much, Kamal Bhai. My next two books will be on Rajpipla. I plan to write a small paperback on the history of our clan and Rajpipla State, including the development works and reforms by the rulers, my ancestors. The other one will be a coffee-table collectors’ edition which will showcase the glamour aspect too, palaces, cars and so on. Thereafter, I want to do a book on cricket’s allrounders revolving around Gary Sobers, on the lines of my ‘Don’s Century. I will also write one on great bowlers, and perhaps one on the history of Indian cricket. I also have in mind a movie on my grandfather Maharaja Vijaysinhji. I did discuss this with someone in Mumbai, and a producer from Windsor too approached me. But nothing has been finalised yet. Many thanks once again and all good wishes.

      • Wow amazing plans and all wonderful. I am sure each will fructify as the thought process from your posts/blogs is already in line with these plans. I would be delighted to read each of them Bhaisaheb, but most of all this “small paperback on the history of our clan and Rajpipla State, including the development works and reforms by the rulers, my ancestors.” My sincere best wishes. Pranaam

      • I just need a bit of time, and to put my mind to it. This paperback will be in Gujarati too, and a low-priced edition. At the moment I am awaiting government clearance of my project, which should come through any time, God willing. Once this happens I can concentrate on everything else. Warm regards and all good wishes.
