The master trainer

In my book DARE, I speak of how I walked into the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai twenty years ago, walk into the Nalanda Bookstore sit on a stool, pull out newspapers and magazines which had my column running in them. That was twenty years ago, and after that, over 60 publications, newspapers and magazines, and websites have carried and carry my daily column…

I am a Newspaper Columnist and write a daily column, BOB’S BANTER, which has graced the pages of over 60 newspapers and magazines, from a daily column in the Khaleej Times, Dubai, the Morning Star, London, and in nearly every state in India, from The Statesman in Kolkata, to the Kashmir Times in Kashmir to the Trinity Mirror in Chennai. Mumbaikars have read my column in the Times of India, Asian Age, Free Press Journal, Lok Sakta, Nagpur, Aurangabad and Nashik, Sakal Times, Pune, Andaman Chronicle, and in The Afternoon Despatch and Courier when Bob’s Banter took over Busybee’s daily column after the death of Behram Contractor.

I also have a column in The Examiner, Indian Currents, and Teenager magazine. I am also the only Indian columnist whose articles appear daily in Bangladesh’s most popular newspaper, The Independent, and also in the Pakistan Observer, Pakistan. My column is also translated into Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi every day and published in the Punjab Kesri, Punjab. The Hindsamachar, into Urdu, and the Jagbhani, into Punjabi.

About the Writer’s & Speaker’s Course

The course is conducted solely by me, and in such a practical way, that there is no need for you to take notes or read from any textbook. Your own writing becomes the text I engage with, enhance, and enrich.

The classes are light on you, but heavy with experience, and with doses of good-natured humor, since I love using light-hearted banter in teaching! But at the end of the course, you come out a writer and an orator, with the beginnings of a book and itching to get behind a podium and speak!

After the course, keen interest is paid by me, to everything you write, and the same can be sent to me, to look into and help you enhance your writing skills even further!
