Maximum Pirates

"The greatest thrill for me, besides winning this award, was finding the chhokras at Haji Ali offering to sell me a pirated copy of my own book for hundred rupees!...Seeing that, I knew Iā€™d made it ā€” that Bombay had truly accepted this book.ā€

- Suketu Mehta, on winning the Crossword Book Award for Maximum City in the English non-fiction category.
