“This book, like the previous one – “For the Love of Armine” – have close ties with Armenia. I have numerous friends in Armenia, who have organized the presentation of this book,” he noted.
Meantime, the Indian writer expressed hope that he will publish another book with Armenian motives. However in order to achieve that purpose, he must receive an agreement from the US Peace Corps to reside in Armenia for two years and engage in volunteering activities in the country.
