Chit Chat and Chai with Chhimi


The SAARC Women’s Association- Sri Lanka Chapter  organized “Chit Chat and Chai with Chhimi” on the 29th of April 2016. Chhimi Tenduf-La of The Amazing Racist and Panther fame and  Artika Bakshi, Co-Founder of The Good Book Corner and President of the SAARC Women’s Association, Sri Lanka Chapter, came together for an evening of discussion about his books.

Chhimi’s books were reviewed by The Good Book Corner in 2015, and we loved both his books.


The SAARC Women’s Association was formed in 1996 to promote cultural integration,friendship and harmony among the women in the member countries of the SAARC region. Since its inception, the Association has undertaken specific fundraising events for charity. This year too, under the baton of their President Artika Bakshi, this event was organized to aid the CCC Foundation, an approved charity to aid children suffering from cancer.
