Andaaz host Sarika Batra (left) and Mayank Chhaya
Sony Entertainment Television’s popular show ‘Andaaz’ featured my interview the other day. The subject was my book “Dalai Lama: Man Monk Mystic”. You may cue it to the 8th minute to watch it if you go to the original link above. Watching it is entirely voluntary.
Far be it for me to review my own interview in my own blog but I suppose it is not far enough. The interview does nothing to challenge my longstanding observation that I sound far too earnest. The timber of my voice has that unnecessary urgency that irritates me.
Also, I must crane my neck a bit more because it looks as if there is nothing between my shoulders and one and a half chins.
I have smoker’s teeth without ever having smoked. Evidently, the Dalai Lama book has not earned me enough to pay a visit or two or three to get my teeth bleached.
What I like the best about this video are my clothes. They have the style of a journalist who was on the verge of making some good money but was pulled back by circumstances at the last moment.
All that said, what I am saying is quite passable.
(I have had to optimize the size of the video in order to upload it here. Hence the resolution has suffered.)
